Why Color? Four Week Workshop

June 7, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Why Color: A four week workshop Tuesdays, 10:00 – 12:00 pm, June 7 – June 28. In works of art, to me, the fundamental question that needs to be answered is not, what color(s), but why color? What is that color can do for a composition that none of the other elements can achieve. What “meaning” can color reveal? What “feeling” can color invoke? How do colors reveal the most sublime characteristic of a composition? Once that question has been answered the importance of color to a work of art becomes more fully understood. Through direct application this four-week workshop will look at the importance of color, beyond fundamental theory concepts, in establishing meaning, invoking feeling though a sublime interaction between color, values and shapes with in works of art. Instructor: Don Eugene Seastrum. Cost: $120.

Annual events in Crested Butte and Gunnison

Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
