Today’s blog is going to review one of those workshop I attended that not only help you understand an aspect of art but also help you discover yourself.
About The Workshop
The Color Pschology Workshop was conducted by the expert Color Consultant Fatima Al Shirawi during the Dubai Design Week 2016 (Held from 24th to 29th October’16) at the Dubai Design District.
As the name clearly suggests, the Color Psychology Workshop was all about understanding colors and their impact on our minds. Therefore the topic of discussion being: Use The Right Color to Balance Your Life!

My verdict on the Workshop
Considering that the Color Psychology workshop by the Gracious F that I attended was an Introductory workshop, I’d say I’m glad I had chance to attend that. It not only helped me develop a deeper understanding of colors but also connected me to myself and helped me discover ways of incorporating colors in my life.
Following is a list of what the workshop was all about:
- Understanding the psycological properties of various colors
- Combining colors and their properties
- 4 color families: Star light, Morning light, Dream light and Fire light
- personalities with the color families
- Use of colors in personal and professional life.
I am not going to go much into the details of the workshop, I’d rather encourage anyone with slightest interest in colors and psychology to find out when the next workshop is happening and do grab the opportunity of attending it.
