Intro to Smashing Color Mixing

Intro to Smashing Color Mixing

with Maggie Maggio

Saturday, Feb 2, 2013, 1:30pm – 5:00pm

Forget the rules. Throw out the color wheel. Come play with color just for the fun of it!

Most color theory is simplistic, misleading, confusing or just plain wrong. This introduction to Smashing Color theories will challenge you to rethink everything you thought you knew about color!

Learn to see color in a new way as you study the properties of color, identify your unique preferences for color temperature, contrast and composition, and explore the many worlds of color using Maggie’s Instinctive Mixing Map to guide the way.

Train your eye to see the nuances in colors by sorting colors and making a color collage. Then learn color mixing basics the easiest way possible – by playing with polymer clay.

Build up your color foundation with basic information about the chemistry, optics and psychology of color. Leave with a new understanding of the complexity of color and an appreciation for where each color lives in the inconnected system that is the color world.

Note: Polymer clay will be used for the exercises but this workshop is open to artists working in all media. Maggie Maggio’s Map is a different and fabulously easy way to learn to mix colors. Even if you are an experienced mixer, you will learn to see color in a whole new way!
