If there’s someone who knows a thing or two about color, it’s Tanya Taylor. The New York-based fashion designer has built a cult following for her vibrant and patterned ready to wear and now wants to share her passion for the power of hues with the rest of us. Taylor has teamed up with her bold decor counterparts at Farrow & Ball to teach a series of color therapy painting classes at their showrooms in select cities around the U.S.

Partnering with the paint masters at Farrow & Ball isn’t exactly unexpected for Taylor. She weaves her background in art and design into every aspect of her collection and looks to collaborate with lifestyle categories whenever she can to execute that vision. According to a release from her label, “She believes that color therapy can heal, stimulate memories, and shift outlooks.” Hard to disagree.

So what exactly can you expect from a Tanya Taylor color therapy class? Using the Farrow & Ball signature palette of 132 (!) colors, Taylor guides students through emotions and past experiences to paint a canvas “with a patchwork of color that will be wholly unique.” The idea is to create a work that is as richly shaded and deeply complex as you and your life history are. This ain’t your average paint and wine night.

The first class was held on July 25 at the Farrow & Ball showroom in New York City. More classes will be held in Farrow & Ball showrooms in select locations nationwide through the fall. Dates haven’t been set, so keep an eye out for an emo art class near you or email colortherapy@tanyataylor.com to be invited to a class in your respective city (on a first-come, first- served basis).
