Experience the Joy of Confident Color for Yourself

img_2458.jpgI have been teaching color workshops using polymer clay, music, collage and movement to enhance the participants understanding and joy or working with color for the past ten years. Where there are dozens of technique driven classes offered, often a FUNdamental color class is overlooked as a first choice because:

  1. the artist took a dry academic class years ago and was frustrated by all the rules and rubber cement
  2. the juicy tantalizing prospect of leaving the workshop with a completed beautiful piece is too tempting
  3. the artist is concentrating on skills that are applicable to the product line they are developing or
  4. a color workshop sounds scary …

In my mind nothing could be further from the truth- my color classes are gentle, fun and explain why one should “break all the rules”. Aside from impeccable craftsmanship and originality nothing else defines, enhances and makes a piece(s) sing as intensely as appropriate color choices will. It is easier to concentrate on exploring and perfecting new techniques and design challenges when one experiences a sense of ease and “rightness” in color selections. Here is what some of my students have said after taking one of my color workshops-

“Incredible! This workshop has changed my life, I see the world with a deeper appreciation of the richness and breadth of color around me AND I know how to mix those colors” Elizabeth R. Minn.

“I’ve struggled with making color choices for years. I wish I had taken this workshop as my first polymer clay class. Looking back I now understand why many of the safer color combinations I was using weren’t optimal and just didn’t work…” Mary B. CA

    Lindly! Hello! I’ve been led to your blog on Maggie’s suggestion and I’m so pleased I did. Reading your class description here in this post makes me want to hop on a plane and come play! Music and fun go so well with art and I’d soooo love to learn to match colours in that kind of environment. Wonderful stuff!
