Students may keep the book for future cooking adventures in their own kitchens upon completing the camp.

Color plays a vitally important role in the world in which we live. Color can sway thinking, change actions, and cause reactions.  As a powerful form of communication, color is irreplaceable. Red means “stop” and green means “go.” Traffic lights send this universal message. likewise, the colors used for a product, website, business card, or logo cause powerful reactions. Color Matters. Learn in this 3-day camp how to use color to its fullest potential. If you love color, you’ll love it, even more, when you finish this camp. Color may never be the same.
