Colour has the capacity to convey meaning often more effectively than words and as a result, colour frequently plays a key role in art and design. Colour can attract or divert attention, create focus, convey symbolic meaning, encourage engagement and interest, and create mood and ambience.
This 8-week course covers everything you need to know about colour including the attributes of colour (hue, tone and saturation); tonal chords and keys; primary, secondary and tertiary colour; colour strategies (including analoguous, extended analoguous, contrasting, and triadic colour) as well as some of the ways in which colours interact including simultaneous contrast and colour discord. Principles and theories about colour are blended with practical exercises to enable a richer exploration of colour and colour application.
Colour exercises using media chosen by the student enables them to explore and understand the nuances of colour. By the end of this course, students will have created their own Colour Journal which provides a way to document their experiences with colour for inspiration and reference.
