Color Inspirations Week with Lindly October 27-November 1, 2020
with Lindly Haunani
Six-day workshop with all the materials included.
Open your eyes to all the many nuances of color around us and learn to see color in a new light! Join Maggie Maggio & Lindly Haunani for Color Week 2020! After last year’s celebration of the the tenth anniversary of the publication of their collaborative book, Polymer Clay Color Inspirations, Maggie and Lindly will be teaching their colorful and inspirational Master Class October 27-November 1, 2020 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
During the six-days of the workshop Maggie and Lindly will share their insights gleaned from decades of teaching color-centric workshops around the world. The class will include: step by step demonstrations, group discussions, individualized consultations, and open studio.
Over the course of the class you will:
? Make an intuitive color collage reflective of your personal color preferences.
? Learn strategies for mixing for color harmony and how to orchestrate value and saturation contrasts.
? Explore combining colors into expressive color schemes.
? Select, design and mix a color palette that makes your heart sing.
Maggie and Lindly will each demonstrate a signature technique that will inspire you to be more adventurous and intentional with your color choices Experience Maggie’s color wash technique as a way to hand sculpt color. Explore Lindly’s textile inspired patterns as a path to exploring combining colors. They will guide you while you learn how to audition possible color combinations, balance different scales and proportions, include the unexpected color (or not?) as you practice creating successful color compositions.
You will be encouraged to complete a project during this workshop: your choice = a series of brooches or a covered box or frame (specific details will be included in the class supply list). By the end of the week you will have a great deal of practical experience working with color as well as several useful studio tools you can take home for reference.
The week will also include some time for gentle critiquing, group brainstorming and mentoring by Maggie and Lindly as you explore ways to customize and personalize your color choices. Come with an open mind, your two magical hands and your sense of humor. Leave with an enhanced understanding of the unlimited possibilities when working confidently with color.
