Day Four

Day Five
Practical Color

Color is an integrated system of both light and pigment. With some practice, it’s not too hard to learn how to travel comfortably between these two worlds.

Forget the rules. We will start by going back to kindergarten and play with  color using Cyan, Magenta and Yellow instead of the classic Red, Yellow and Blue primary colors.

After experimenting with modern color mixing in polymer clay, we will go deeper into the world of color exploration by looking through a prism, mixing color in light, and then mix a color blend in polymer clay to use for the project.

The adventure continues with explorations of your unique sense of color. On the second day, you will make a personal color collage, create a customized palette, and learn how to use 3D color relationships to develop your color voice .

You will leave with a better understanding of the complexity of color and many new tools continuing your explorations of the interconnected system of light and pigment that is at the heart of 21st Century Color.  My goal is that you go back to your studio feeling more comfortable with using color intuitively and more willing to use it adventurously!
