Workshop: Colour association with Amy Schleif

12:30pm - 3:30pm

Where: Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre, corner of Vulcan and Campbell streets, Moruya.

Cost: $120

Learn how colour can be used to describe emotions and communicate just as effectively as language in this intriguing workshop with Amy.

Join Amy, a renowned expert in colour theory, as she shares her insights on how to effectively use colours to evoke emotions, create harmonious palettes, and make impactful design choices.

You'll have the opportunity to participate in hands-on exercises, experiment with colour combinations, and gain practical knowledge that you can apply to your own projects.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • delve into what each colour on the colour wheel can communicate
  • explore their own personal association with colour through exercises
  • complete a painting imparting a specific emotion.

This workshop is perfect for anyone interested in understanding the psychology and symbolism behind colours, whether you're an artist, designer, or simply curious about the impact of colours on our daily lives.

Saturday Sessions at the Bas are open to adult residents and visitors interested in immersing themselves in a fun and hands-on class. Participants can learn artistic techniques taught by some of Eurobodalla’s most talented artists. No previous experience is necessary.
