This workshop will focus on color—how it works and why it works—through practice rather than theory. Experience is the only route to a working vocabulary of color ideas. This two-week workshop will begin with the classic study of the interaction of color using Josef Albers’ techniques, primarily with cut paper and collage. In the second week, students will explore the density and transparency of light and color, through careful observation from life with color pencils. Color creates magic in any work of art, and this workshop will teach each student how. Students of skill levels and disciplines are welcome.
Lisa Dinhofer—painter, draftswoman and printmaker—earned her BA with honors from Brandeis University. For two years, she participated in the summer program at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, later receiving her MFA from the University of Pennsylvania. Her work has been shown extensively both nationally and internationally. Her most recent solo shows were at Purdue University (Indiana, 2010), and at Denise Bibro Fine Art (New York, 2009). Her paintings, drawings and prints are widely collected, and publicly represented at Brooklyn Museum of Art, City College (CUNY), IBM and other venues. In 2003, she completed a 90-foot glass mosaic mural, “Losing My Marbles,” which was commissioned by the MTA Arts for Transit program. It is centrally located at the Times Square subway station. Currently, Ms. Dinhofer is represented by Denise Bibro Fine Art in New York. For more information please visit www.lisadinhofer.com.
