Every year I teach a multi-session color theory class at the Camden Rockport Middle School and it always rocks my socks off. I get so much great energy and spirit from these kids! They tackle college level challenges with such flexibility and curiosity, and learn a lot about craftsmanship and the changing nature of color along the way. Pictured here are a variety of works in progress toward our vibrating vs. vanishing edges challenge, and our illusion of transparency challenge. It’s great to play with color as we wait for late winter to turn into spring.
