Fritz Horstman is Artist Residency and Education Coordinator at the Albers Foundation. He has developed and presented workshops and lectures for institutions such as the Bauhaus Dessau, Dia:Beacon, The Drawing Center, Princeton University, Bennington College, Yale University, Exploratorium San Francisco, the Ecole des Beaux-Arts Paris, and the Lebanese American University in Beirut, as well as numerous elementary, middle and high schools and community centers. He has shown his own art in recent exhibitions in France, Russia, Japan, Norway, California, Massachusetts and Brooklyn.

Working directly from Albers’s teaching notes from the Bauhaus, Black Mountain College and Yale University, we approach color with open eyes, working through exercises such as “make three colors become four” and “four color worlds.” Because of the abstract and subjective nature of color, this workshop is useful to all artists — those focused on color and those focused elsewhere.
