Exploring the Rainbow – Two day workshop

Learn how to create blazing, simmering or evocative color schemes. This multi-sensory approach makes learning about color fun! Define your color preferences, learn how to recipe/replicate colors and increase your color confidence. This workshop is ideal for anyone desiring to enhance the color impact in their work, whether you work with watercolors, colored pencils, collage, fibers or polymer clay.

Understanding how to utilize the three properties of color: hue, value and saturation, to your advantage add cohesion and impact to your work. Learn why the “rules” as they are outlined in many color reference books, rarely provide satisfactory results.

We will begin with exploring your color likes and dislikes and de-mystifying the vocabulary of color design. During the afternoon session we will explore custom mixing pigment primaries using polymer clay and how to mix to match colors.

The second day will include exercises to explore color harmonies and how proportion and simultaneity can magically change the look of your color schemes as you construct a series of colorful polymer clay fabrics to be fashioned into a  series “crazy-quilt” postcards. Come with an open heart and mind and prepare to be amazed.

Supply fee: TBA /person includes frame, color handout and polymer clay

Note: This workshop centers around developing a personalized palette and is best suited for experienced polymer clay artists- as the emphasis is on “seeing” color rather than learning new polymer clay techniques.
