Lyme Art Association DEMONSTRATION AND WORKSHOP
Gigi Horr Liverant, Demonstration, June 10, 2:00-4:00 pm

Two-Day Workshop, July 22-23, 10:00 am – 4:00pm
Want to get reacquainted with R O Y G. B I V (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet)? Join Gigi Liverant in this 2-day Color Dynamics Workshop and learn how to maximize the potential of color relationships in your artwork. Kandinsky said, “Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” Let’s do some soul searching!
Students will be given color manipulatives and prompted to explore the possibilities of using varied color combinations that best express your ideas. Each day will begin with a demonstration followed by lots of opportunities to explore color applications for your compositions. The two-day workshop will be geared towards the individual artist’s goals and abilities, and the color exploration can be executed in all mediums that use a full range of color.
