ONLINE WORKSHOP // Color & Light // with Mathis Richard.
We will try to understand how to learn color and light through a digital medium. We’ll focus on how to achieve an appealing image through a strong composition, convincing lighting and a vibrant color palette. To do so we’ll work together on studying these subjects with efficiency. There will be homework after each-class as well as in-class exercises. We’ll also take some time together to review your work and portfolios!

What happens if I can’t see the classes live one day?
• No problem. All classes are live but will also be recorded and posted on our platform. So you can see them whenever you want throughout the duration of the course. This means that if you cannot attend your class live at the stipulated time, you will be able to see them on the platform until the end of the course. These video-classes posted on the platform can be viewed unlimitedly during the duration of the course but cannot be copied or downloaded. They can also be viewed for 6 months once the course is over.
When can I see the classes I did not attend live?
• Access to the virtual platform where you can consult all the information or documentation of the course, access all the classes that have already been taught or the proposed exercises.
