Exploring Creativity with Color

Create with your personal color pallet. Part of what makes a child’s drawing so exciting is the fearless use of color and shape. In this 3-hour workshop, we will embrace our inner child and give voice to our personal color palette.

Color is part of the ‘conversation’ in every aspect of our lives. The interior of our home, a button in an online interface, or the poetic single line in a piece of art. The selection of color and the play of one color against another helps to set the tone of the ‘conversation’. And though it plays a lead role, it is often the very thing that is most feared in the creative process. Color plays multiple roles including setting the visual temperature, illustrating depth, and moving the eye’s focus around a painting, a design, or physical space.

Our Time Together

For this intro course we will quickly review the color wheel and core color concepts. Then you will create a color palette based on your favorite color(s) and carry it through to ‘color tiles’ using cut and torn papers. This is a fun, fast paced 3-hour creativity workshop geared to adults. I will be available for one-on-one attention and personal feedback. At the end, we will spend time enjoying one another’s work.
