Local Color: A Watercolor Workshop with Mimi Robinson

Workshop | April 8 | 10 a.m.-3 p.m. |  UC Botanical Garden

 Botanical Garden

Have you ever noticed that each place has its own distinct set of colors? This hands-on watercolor workshop helps us explore the colors of the unique flora and fauna that make up The UC Botanical Garden. Through classroom and field studies we will develop personal and collective color palettes that reflect this remarkable place. You may also discover what is surprising and unexpected along the way. Learn and refine your color mixing skills, and how “limited palettes” can create a wide range of subtle color. The workshop is intended to appeal to both the experienced artist and the complete novice, as well as travelers looking for a unique and memorable way to capture impressions of places.

Instructor: Mimi Robinson
Artist, designer, and educator Mimi Robinson began creating color palettes inspired by place for her own paintings. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Robinson has worked extensively in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, and The Carribbean. She partners with artisan communities to promote and honor the use of traditional skills and local materials to build small businesses that incorporate their artistic legacies.
