Project Based Color Theory

Color is one of the most powerful tools for artists and designers. It can convey attitudes and feelings or subtle messages and has an immediate effect on the viewer. This project based course will help sharpen and train one's eye to recognize, describe, define, replicate, and memorize color in everyday experience. 

This course shall cover not only the basic elements of color theory, but also provide an opportunity for the more intuitive and practical applications of color in the making of art. The perceptual, symbolic, and cultural significance of color will also be explored.
