Working directly from Albers's teaching notes from the Bauhaus, Black Mountain College and Yale University, Fritz Horstman, Albers Foundation's Artist Residency and Education Coordinator, shares an approach to 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 artists and educators—those focused on color and those focused elsewhere.

Josef Albers was one of the most influential artist-educators of the twentieth century. As a member of the Bauhaus in Germany in the 1920s; a teacher at Black Mountain College during the 1930s and 1940s; and Chairman of the Department of Design at Yale University beginning in 1950, Albers developed a distinctive approach to color education based on experimentation and individual perception. His collaborative research with students was first published in 1963 in Interaction of Color, a book that has become a classic of design education around the world.
