Color Theory

The Basic Elements and Principles of Color

If you are involved in the creation of visual design, an understanding of color helps when incorporating it into your own designs. Choices regarding color often seem rather mystical, as many seem to base decisions on nothing other than "it just looks right."

In the visual arts, color theory is a body of practical guidance to color mixing and the visual effects of specific color combination. There are also definitions of colors based on the color wheel: primary color, secondary color and tertiary color. Discussions of color and its relationship to composition, through harmony and contrast, will be explored.

Members develop working skills with thinking and information of color design for a variety of visual effects. This course involves the development of color perception, expression, and application in traditional and digital imagery, using two dimensional formats through a series of problem solving exercises and projects.
