Color & Design Theory

Because color is such a personal and subjective area, it is perhaps inappropriate to discuss it in terms of rules and theories. Nevertheless, to paint well, it is important for the students to have some understanding of how colors behave and how they relate to each other.

In this class students will learn how colors affect one another when mixed together or applied side by side, how they change under different light and how they can be used to re-create form, shape, perspective and mood. All this knowledge is important if you want color to do what you want it to do.

Additionally, the basic elements of composition and design are discussed while developing students' technical and creative skills through the integration of both color and design. Even the simplest subject needs to be composed so that it fits effectively within the confines of the picture space so that it emphasizes the message behind the work.

More often than not, pictures impact is due to a strong, expressive design and a knowledgeable use of color.
