Maggie Maggio is an architectural designer, artist and art educator who has studied and worked with color for over forty years. Her personal explorations into the science of light and pigments led to the creation of workshops for artists and designers who want to incorporate the latest research in color science into their creative practice.
Maggie is on the Board of Directors of the Inter-Society Color Council (ISCC) and co-chairs the International Color Association (AIC) Study Group on Color Education. As a founding member of the ISCC/AIC Color Literacy Project, Maggie focuses on bridging between the art, science, and industry of color and advancing color literacy for the 21st century.

The Color Literacy Project: Designing an Interdisciplinary Resource for 21st Century Color Education
The study of color has been relegated primarily to art education, where the information is often oversimplified, inaccurate and fossilized. We need to radically re-think basic color education by introducing color as a collaborative arts and science subject at the elementary school level in STEAM programs and at the professional level across art, science, and industry. This session will present the goals and objectives of the recently formed Joint Committee on Color Literacy of the Inter-Society Color Council (ISCC) and the International Color Association (AIC).
