#Friday #Finally! #Already?

52 Every color has an opposite, called a complement. Complementary colors sit opposite one another in the color wheel. Additionally, all colors are affected by the presence of other colors. Even the smallest presence of a complement will enhance the intensity of a color when it is present in the same visual field. The presence of red, for instance, will cause the retina to “seek” green in the other colors present, hereby enhancing all parts of the green spectrum. If you wish to intensify a color in a composition, place some of its complement nearby. This applies to all media. The effective use of color is one of the greatest tools at an artist’s disposal. – Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

Comments from Survey: Thanks All!

  • Enjoyed your energy. All your communication with parents. I need to get my staff to do that more. I will share all your tools.
  • Putting goals out there for my students. Right now, they just have to guess… and most of them don’t try, oddly 🙂
  • I’ve enjoyed it a lot. Learned a lot. It’s been great to have some time to work and experiment with WordPress.
  • I liked that it setting up a blog is easy and free.

And Even…

  • It seemed sort of self-promotional.

I appreciate ALL the comments. I enjoyed working with each group and learning form other experts in their own fields. Criticism in essential in the learning process and I appreciate all the work and reflections from everyone. Your thoughts about my sessions… HERE.
