Working with Color with Cynthia Dantzic
Saturday/Sunday, June 30 & July 1
Details and registration: here.

Since color plays an important role in the work of many calligraphers, the SoS has called on a student of the 20th century’s foremost colorist, Josef Albers, to introduce a selection of his most important studies to our membership.

In this hands-on workshop, participants will discover a number of ways to use color to enhance and enrich their calligraphic work. At the very first meeting, you will see how a single color can become two or more completely different colors, depending on their environment. Choices of inks and background colors will take on new meanings, and that is only the beginning.

We found a great post about Josef Albers and the magic of color from BrainPickings here.
