Smokeschool- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPoD7cUlNYs

Smoke School of Art is an Atlanta based Non Profit think tank that discusses and addresses contemporary philosophy and issues in modern art & culture. We assert that all modern art derives from Africa -all conceptual exercise is derived and conceived in the ancient ceremonies of the Dogon. We are the noble savages that reside on the moon- with rites of passage, shape shifting through the universe. We have special powers embedded in our pigment, hair, and bone. We have been indoctrinated by grimy HIP HOP-you can’t handle our extra muscle.

**All are welcome to join in the discussion**
(Please feel free to post a comment on the homework in the comment area on the SSA Facebook page if you are unable to attend….BYOB and RSVP (inbox message or comment below)

We are interested in building communities by participating in Exhibitions, Collaborations, Partnerships, Lectures, Critiques, Mentor-ship and Educational development

I am interested in the similar resolutions achieved by impoverished peoples. These resolutions can be seen in the inventiveness of children. Children use what is available with the focus on the specificity of its use rather than the price paid for. There is pure joy that happens from a tire race. The collective joy that occurs relieves a community. As a Jamaican raised child I had no sense of poverty, to the contrary I knew I was wealthy. The same ingenuity occurs with hard up children all over the world, but the sense of community has been dissolved here in America. Differences are exacerbated by capitalist practices within urban neighborhoods. Peoples of the same status persistently alert others as to who is wearing the same shirt again today. This divisive practice continues through adulthood and a culture of separation prevails. Separation lines between nationalities, states, zip codes even shades of skin are promoted from childhood. I am interested in building a community through a culture of unification.
BIO
Christopher Hutchinson is an accomplished Jamaican conceptual artist, professor and contributor to the art community as a writer, critic and founder of the nonprofit Smoke School of Art. He is a Professor of Art at Atlanta Metropolitan State College and has been featured as a lecturer including prestigious engagements at University of Alabama and the Auburn Avenue Research Library. For two decades, Chris has been a practicing artist. His works have been exhibited in internationally recognized institutions including City College New York (CUNY) and featured at the world’s leading international galleries such as Art Basel Miami. He has always had an innate passion for creating spaces where Africans and people of African descent contribute to an inclusive contemporary dialogue—ever evolving, not reflexive but pioneering. This requires challenging the rubric of the canon of art history, a systemic space of exclusion for the Other: women and non-Whites, and where necessary he rewrites it. He received his Master of Fine Arts Degree in Painting from Savannah College of Art & Design, Atlanta and his Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Alabama in Huntsville, Alabama.

Color Theory – The Basics

Color Theory:

The primary colors are those colors that go together to make up all other colors. (Red, Blue and Yellow)

The secondary colors are located in between the primary colors. The secondary colors are those that are made up by combining equal parts of two primary colors.
(green, orange and purple)

Tertiary colors are located in between a primary and secondary color. They are created by combining equal parts of a secondary and primary color. (eg. blue-green)

Color schemes (the combination of colors within a work of art):

A triadic color scheme is bold and eye-catching and created when three colors that are equally-spaced on the color wheel are combined.

An analogous color scheme is more subtle and harmonious and created by combining colors that are located directly next to each other on the color wheel.

Monochromatic color schemes are calming and harmonious created by using various tones of the same color.

Tints and Shades:

Tints can create a softer and more delicate feel and created by combining any hue of color with white.

Shades can create a heaviness and created by combining any hue of color with black.
