Color is probably the most relative medium in art. Each color has a specific property, whether it’s the particular wavelength in optical perception, the molecular construction of pigments or an RGB value for a monitor. Though each of those properties may be fixed, the expression and perception of a color may change within different contexts.
The Color Theory course focuses on developing appropriate color systems for graphic design projects. These projects explore the principles, terminology, and applications of color theory, with an emphasis on manipulating color. Students will acquire a working knowledge of the expression and perception of color, and color interaction, which lends credibility and sophistication to a designer’s work.
