Tuesday, July 28, 2020 - 5:30pm

Online Class


This class has been cancelled.

Under the guidance of landscape architect David Dew Bruner, learn basic color theories outlined in Josef Albers’s classic text, Interaction of Color and how they can be applied to the landscape. Examine how the feel and impact of color can change a space. In the project for this four-week class, students will design the same garden space twice, using a different color scheme each time andl exploring how the change in the color scheme changes the mood and feel of a space as well as people’s reactions to it. Through this exercise, students will come to understand their own preferences for color. Each class will feature examples of color renderings and small exercises to increase familiarity with various techniques. Purchase of the text is not required for participation in the class.

David Dew Bruner, A.S.L.A., is an award-winning landscape architect and fine artist with over 35 years of experience in the field. In addition to serving as Deputy Administrator of Riverside Park in New York City, his diverse background includes amusement park design, historic restoration, and all scales of residential design.
