I am in serious mode, hard at work building my new workshop/lab on Color and Design.
This workshop is a Part Two of sorts, and a prerequisite to taking this workshop is having done my Color Inspiration workshop. Here we will be going a step further. We learned how to seek inspiration for interesting color combinations and how to interpret a particular scene into a fabulous color story, uniquely ours, now let us hone those skills while learning how to design a geometric. If you know me, you know this is not going to be a traditional design class. We are not going to learn how to recite S-c-a-l-e, D-o-m-i-n-a-n-c-e, C-o-n-t-r-a-s-t, B-a-l-a-n-c-e, blah blah blah, not because those terms are bad or wrong but because they are the end, we are looking for the means. We are looking for the beginning and for the journey. Why are those pesky rules found in design books, or talked about in design classes? We will find out, we will go back to the origin, back to what makes it all work.
If you have taken my Color Inspiration class, would you be interested in Part 2, where you will expand your color skills and add design skills as well? This class will be a four day class. If you have any interest and would like me to put you on my list of first come, first serve, let me know HERE.
Back to the drawing board. Ta ta!
