"What Color are You?" Lecturette & Workshop
with Charito Lozano
August 31, Wednesday, 2 to 3:30 PM
The colors that attract or repel us are symbolic of the energies behind our perceptions and behaviors, of which we are oftentimes unconscious. That is why depth psychologists and art therapists use colors to facilitate people's awareness of the hindering and helping factors influencing their lives.
In this mini-workshop, certified color counselor Charito Lozano will help participants explore their colors, understand the meaning of those colors, and discover the colors which will help them achieve balance and harmony in their lives.
"Color Theory & the Pinoy Fiesta Palette" Lecturette & Workshop
with Oliver Roxas
August 31, Wednesday, 4 to 6 PM
We are surrounded by color; Philippine Fiestas and traditions make use of color in all kinds of fantastic ways. This workshop will introduce basic color theory and the traditional color harmonies of Pinoy fiestas. It will include a short activity on creating color schemes based on themes and culture bridges theory to hands-on, experiential learning.
