in living colour

Does anyone remember the old TV show In Living Colour? J Lo was one of the back up dancers and Jim Carey played Fire Marshall Bill? I remember sitting with my parents watching it and thinking it was the funniest thing I've ever seen, especially when I'd see my dad laugh so hard he'd have tears in his eyes....I'm clearly showing my age here.  Anyways this post isn't about my trip down memory lane or a discussion on television history but rather my experience at last night's School of Real Living Colour Masterclass.  To be honest I wasn't sure what to expect. I've mentioned before I'm not at all adventurous when it comes to colour so I wasn't sure how much I'd take away from the class but I was completely and pleasantly surprised.  

Ness and I made our way to the studio, had a glass of champagne and took our seats to listen to Jacinta Preston give an overview on colour and how to approach the often overwhelming task of where to start. I'm not sure if it was the glass of champagne or Jacinta's soothing voice but I was immediately relaxed and even found myself taking a notes, such the good student. Next up Lucy Sutherland from ISCD gave us a trend talk before we sat down to a practical and hilarious lesson on core and reject colours. Ness and I loved every minute, picking out colours, making mood boards and just enjoying time away from the everyday routine. It was amazing how comforting it was to move away from the computer, pick up a pair of scissors and start cutting and clipping away. I felt like a kid in a candy store and couldn't recommend it more.

Hi Jaclyn,
is there anything you would like to share? Do they talk about upcoming trends to is it more about where and how to apply color? I am really curious. Warm BYW greetings!
