Come spend the day playing with colour!
Colour surrounds us. It is a visual language that affects how we feel and how we engage with the world around us. Traditional colour theory focuses on colour for artists and designers but our world is changing and colour theory is changing along with it.
There is no better way to get a taste of the complex world of modern colour than by hands-on explorations. After years of test-driving hundreds of colour books and products for studying colour, I selected the best and set up a Colour Explorer Room in Portland, Oregon.
I invite you to join me in the Colour Explorer Room for a sampler of the exercises from my five-day Smashing Colour Week. I will bring out a collection of my favorite toys and products and lead you in a series of fun and informative exercises to introduce you to basic concepts in the science and art of colour.
This is not your traditional colour class! Anyone interested in exploring the art and science of 21st Century Color is welcome to come and play for the day!

Students Bring: Laptop or I-pad and Curiousity
Skill Level: All Ages
Location: VIA Artistica Studio, 2nd floor of Taborspace

My Monarch necklaces mimic the colors of the famous butterflies. Recently I decided to experiment with a yellow palette as well – bumbles! I think both are successful. I’ll demo both of these, but you could choose your own colors as well. Maybe a gorgeous blue morpho butterfly!
Polymer clay pinched shell beads are the basis for these dramatic, lightweight necklaces, bracelets or earrings. The key to creating these eye catching pieces lies in balancing repeated design elements with variations on a theme to create interest. In this class we’ll learn to make four types of simple painterly canes, pictured below, which make up the 80 shells for a necklace. We’ll also make the striped cane that accents the shells, and learn how to string the cured beads. There are a few tricks to monarchs and bumbles- sometimes hints are the best part of a class.
