Color Fluency- Spend the day in the presence of the Queen of Color Fluency. Learn from the expert on color work. Anna Maria switches up traditional color conventions in order to develop stunning and individual palettes. Beginning with a traditional color wheel, Anna demonstrates how each color interacts with one another depending on its position in the wheel. Then using a fun color palette exercise with fabric, she guides students towards building an adventurous, yet theory based, palette. Palettes will further get tweaked using group input. Anna Maria explains how to translate palette knowledge to printed fabrics, demonstrating how scale and proportion can be used to create new and interesting patchwork combinations. This class is ideal for anyone who wants to understand how to work intuitively with color and print. We will then extend this class with some patchwork play as an ideal way to immediately put some of the new color skills to use and get excited to try out our palettes!

Techniques taught:
-Basic Color Theory
-Translating printed fabrics to Color categories
-Patchwork Block Demo (Pop Rocks suggested)
