The Art of Color Workshop

The Art of Color Workshop on September 19th was a huge success. Friends came from all over the area to see how a spin of the color wheel could brighten their day (and Fall wardrobe!)  There was tea and fresh figs to share. Color is mood food.  Just as we have food that feeds our bodies, color feeds our emotions. Carol Klesow, international color teacher of Aura-Soma and AuraJin assisted the  class. I really look forward to working with her again!

Here's a preview of my trip to New York!

On my recent trip to New York City, I was excited to be able to attend American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The exhibit was drawn from the newly established Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at the Met.  American Woman examines different perceptions of the modern American woman from the 1890s to the 1940s and how they have affected the way American women are seen today. It interested me to see how the American Woman reinvented her femininity, especially thorough her dress.

More from my visit to come!
