    Josef Albers's Color Experiments

    Working directly from Albers's teaching notes and student recollections, Albers Foundation educator Fritz Horstman will lead experiments such as "make one color become two" and "the four color worlds". Josef Albers' color course was legendary. The Bauhaus master, who also was director of Black Mountain College and head of the Yale School of Art, taught generations of students to see color in new and unexpected ways. Over a lifetime of teaching, he created a series of exercises that opened up the subject of color. In this four hour workshop, we will explore a few of these exercises. There is no prerequisite of painting or color experience.

    All materials, including ColorAid paper, will be provided. Participants will be able to take their exercises home.


    Fritz Horstman is the Artist Residency and Education Coordinator at the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, where he has worked since 2004. He has taught Albers workshops at the École des Beaux-Arts Paris, the Bauhaus Dessau, The Royal College of Art in London, the Exploratorium and many other institutions. He is also an artist who has shown his photographs, sculptures, drawings, and videos in recent exhibitions in Norway, France, Russia, Japan, California, and Brooklyn. He received his BA from Kenyon College and his MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art.

    The registration will be $75. The default payment is via PayPal (you do not need to create a PayPal account.) Payment by check is available, but please contact the ISCC office for details.
