For artists and designers the practice of creating a color catalogue encourages an approach to seeing color and generating new color schemes for one’s studio work. In this half-day workshop taught by SCAD professor Marcia Cohen, we’ll explore a very direct method of color scrutiny and analysis with an emphasis on color organization and color proportion for later application in the studio.
