What Is Color Theory? | Featuring DC Artist East's Isaiah Aladejobi

Tomorrow, PZay The Creative will be leading a workshop on color theory. According to Vistaprint, Color theory is both the science and art of using color. It explains how humans perceive color; and the visual effects of how colors mix, match or contrast with each other. Color theory also involves the messages colors communicate; and the methods used to replicate color.

Graphic designers, muralists, and other creatives are invited to join in on a color theory workshop featuring DC Artists East artist Isaiah Aladejobi.

RSVP for this workshop before time runs out!

The program is brought to you by The HIVE 2.0 and Artbae as we celebrate the closing of "Royalty".
