Announcing Episode #11: 3/10/12 “Color Theory”

21 Feb

Sign-up is open for the next event.  Comment below to confirm — we have four confirmed, and 4 more seats open for this one. We’ll convene Saturday evening, March 10, 2012.  The usual times: prep 5-7pm, etc.

For this dinner, by executive decree, we will forgo the usual polling process to choose the theme.  At the special request of RichardM, the FMC will be participating in a visual arts project involving color theory.   Participants will be randomly assigned one of the following for inspiration of their paired course:

  • complementary contrast: red/green; blue/orange; yellow/violet  (will provide list of complementary colors)
  • contrast of light and dark: one color in its purest form, along with tints (lighter variations) and shades (darker variations) of the color
  • contrast of temperature: colors associated with warm and cool sensations
  • triadic color chord: red/yellow/blue  (primary colors)
  • triadic color chord: green/orange/violet  (secondary colors)
  • illusion of transparency  (additive/subtractive color)
  • make one color look like two  (one color changes in appearance on 2 different background colors)
  • make two colors look alike  (two different colors appear to look the same on 2 different background colors)

Photographic (non-food) examples of the above concepts will be provided in a subsequent post.  The event will be documented for a project that Richard is working on — I’ll let him comment more on that.

Also, Francine has been updating the description of Episode #9 – World Peace, thank you all for your contributions of text!  Episode #10 The Oscar’s write up may coincide with the actual Oscars if we’re lucky.
