We all need to exercise our creative connections. This group is devoted to inspiring one another in a safe community with unabashed creativity! We will experiment together and play with materials in all new ways, challenging ourselves to color outside the lines and break rules. There will be a little instruction that focuses on inspiration, but the rest of the time is dedicated to your personal creative exploration. This is YOUR creative playground!
Come at 6pm to connect with others and warm up your creative spirit. First time attendees will receive a free mixed media arts journal!
Creative Playground is facilitated by local artist Jessica Gordon. Jes has been a professional Artist and Color Consultant for 15 years; having graduated from the Atlanta College of Art with a degree in Painting in 1997. Her obsession with color was born in a figure painting class where each color had to be mixed on the pallet, scooped up with the pallet knife, walked over to the model to match that particular skin tone & shadow, before the paint was allowed to touch the brush or the canvas. It was then, that Jessica was sucked in to the world of paint colors. Color mixing has given her a unique understanding of the make-up of color and how to achieve certain nuances.
After college, Jessica furthered her color and paint education by working in retail paint stores, where she gained a comprehensive understanding of the paint industry from the manufacturers themselves. Painting murals, creating decorative finishes, working in paint stores and continuing to create fine art have all provided Jessica with essential professional experience. Desperate for more information, Jessica was searching for a graduate program in color consulting or color theory; although one does not exist, she was delighted to find the IACC-NA (International Association of Color Consultants/Designers – North America) in 2004.
In 2007, Buckets of Color was created as Jessica launched out on her own, solely creating her income from Color Consulting. She considers this work both fulfilling and joyful. After consulting with her 1,000th client; Jessica left the Annapolis MD area and moved back to Atlanta, GA.
This event takes place at our Buckhead store.
