9/7 Growing Color: BLUE at PAAM


6/11 + 9/7 at The Provincetown Art Association + Museum

BLUE: It defines an era of music as well as marks of time in the art world and can describe complicated feelings with one simple word.

The color of gods, of both sadness and serenity, of sea and sky. Prolific yet elusive, blue can be made from only a few plants on earth. Long part of the artists’ palette, Persicaria tinctoria – indigo, has been used for ages to make pigment and dye. In this workshop series, learn to how to grow, harvest, and extract color to make dried pigment for paint and dyeing cloth. The first session will cover growing indigo along with instruction on how to create color for dyeing and painting; seeds are included. The second session will feature dyeing with fresh leaves creating shades of robin’s egg blue. Classes can be taken alone or as a series. For both sessions, please bring watercolor paper and brushes for painting.

Saturday, June 11 from 10-12pm and Wednesday, September 7 from 5-7:00pm
at The Provincetown Art Association and Museum.
