How to Make a Color Chart with Lisa Solomon #ArtTuesday
Here’s a great walkthrough on how to make a color chart. Color a language that surrounds us, that we rarely think about. A great way to do that is to make a color chart. Here’s more from JUXTAPOZ:
In our ongoing partnership with If You Were Here Now, we are working on a series of art tutorials and therapeutic “creativity-at-home” projects even as we all being a bit of an “emergence” from the shelter in the place around the globe. Today we have a special session with color expert Lisa Solomon, whose newest book, A Field Guide to Color, is a watercolor workbook which introduces “fresh ways to connect with color in your art and life.” Lisa’s session is about creating a color chart, a helpful and practical exercise and tool to have while painting to understand the colors you have available to you.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
