Watch the videos in class

  • Show the videos of Albers describing after-image or middle mixtures.
  • Watch short, informative and beautifully filmed videos about Albers as a Teacher and the History of Interaction of Color.  Help your students gain perspective on how the book was developed – by students and for students.
  • Show the “Color in Practice Videos” to your students.  These videos are designed to give students perspective on why understanding the relationships between color is so effective for their current and future work.
  • Show commentary videos to reinforce concepts for specific plates
  • The video on CMYK vs RGB is helpful for those designing on their computers for printing.

Instructor Testimonials

“There are many ways to approach color in theory, but with this Albers app the student of color gets to experience both the theory and practice at the same time. As a former college art instructor, I wish I’d had this to aid in my presentations. The app is visually stunning, intuitive, friendly, and useful in both fine and commercial art. It’s the go-to color reference.”—Paul Castagna, Instructor

“The colors in this iPad app are absolutely gorgeous! . . . I think Albers would be proud to see this version. The fact that it is truly interactive allowing the user to learn experientially through observation is a real bonus and makes it all the more powerful!”—Robert Tynes, Professor of Art, University of North Carolina, Asheville

“Thank you for this amazing app! It is wonderful to have videos of Albers included with the text and exercises. The experience of viewing this is profound.”—Kathleen Raymond, The Episcopal School of Dallas

“I absolutely love this app. The book has been my ‘color bible’ for many years. Now I can do all the studies without my color aid paper! Thank you for all!”—Susan Opperman, P A L E T T E Color and Design

“The perfect way to guide someone through the work of an amazing man.”—Thomas Keith, freelance designer
