Captivating Color Studies

A color study is like a meditation; Its form can be the result of measured and considered steps or allowing oneself to play freely. Each approach is valid and both develop or help us maintain necessary skills.  

So why study color? Well, those of us involved in art or craft might answer that as an element of Design it furthers our practice to know what were working with. But what if you’re not a student of art? Why would you or should you study Color?

Because Color is as prevalent as the air you breathe. Every moment of your life contains a register of colors, most of which you have to ignore in order to function. Turning your focus to color can lead you to new ways of thinking. The magic of Color is that you can employ it very powerfully and in so many aspects. Whether using it in a professional setting, as an artist, decorating your home or planning your garden understanding how color works empowers us to further shape our lives.

Just like when learning a language, studying color is a discipline which requires more than one approach in order to be conversant and creative.

Gail has been working with Color for a long time and developed Level 1 Color Studies to give anyone and everyone access to information about color. Her simple exercises illustrate important principles, while practical exercises develop an understanding of color in general and personal ways.

    I learned so much from this course. Now everytime I acquire a new set of colors I go through Gail’s simple exercises to learn about how my new colors mix with each other and with the colors I already have. It is such a delightful way of immersing myself in the beauty of color, and learn what they can do!
