Background:
Art historian, lecturer and artist Gayna Pelham will explore how colour has been used by artists across the centuries.  In her inspiring talk she will discuss the pigments used by the different artists in specific paintings and why they used certain colour combinations. 
You will be able to discover not only how colour was used symbolically but further, how colour theory developed and how theory affected the way colour was used in later centuries.

Gayna Pelham has a background in Classical music. She specialises in working across the arts and has worked with orchestras and composers as well as film and animation makers. She also works at the National Gallery as well as other art institutions and corporate clients across London. 
Moreover Gayna is an exhibiting artist and art teacher. She creates large scale paintings and interactive installations and is passionate about teaching art, especially to those who feel they cannot draw.
