Del Ray Artisans – Creative Book Club

Book: “The Secret Lives of Color” by Kassia St. Clair
Facilitator: Rusty Lynn
Meeting rescheduled to Saturday, February 11 from 10am-12pm
(Drop-in, set a reminder in Eventbrite)

The book for the first book club meeting of 2023 is The Secret Lives of Color by Kassia St. Clair (published in 2016). The book is organized around the color groups and full of very interesting research about all the colors imaginable.

Since the book is all about colors, and most of us have a favorite color or two, please feel free to bring a piece of your artwork to share that uses one or more of your favorite colors to the discussion.

“The Secret Lives of Color tells the unusual stories of seventy-five fascinating shades, dyes, and hues. From blonde to ginger, the brown that changed the way battles were fought to the white that protected against the plague, Picasso’s blue period to the charcoal on the cave walls at Lascaux, acid yellow to kelly green, and from scarlet women to imperial purple, these surprising stories run like a bright thread throughout history.”—Penguin Books (Publisher)
