Color Theory & Design


An essential course for anyone pursuing or currently working in any art or design field who must communicate effectively with color. Confidence and skill are developed through weekly color-mixing exercises and homework projects using gouache.

Through lecture, demonstration, critique, and practical experience, students investigate color theory, historical color comparison, color in nature, and analyze masterpiece color. Lectures include the phenomena of color and light and the use of color as a marketing tool.
