Color theory is taught in art foundation training. Remember the color wheel, primary colors, and secondary colors? And how they can play off each other. An entire generation of artists influenced by abstract expressionism created a movement called Color Field painting. This isn’t the 50s and 60s when great artists like Mark Rothko, Joan Miro, Jackson Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler, Clyfford Stil roamed the streets of New York made their mark. However, we now have electronics, neon, LEDs, Post-It notes, computers, videos, markers, and endless other new arrays of materials and tools to use. We want to see what you can imagine when you get colorful!
