In Color Theory, students are familiarized with various color theories and associated vocabulary of the color wheel, color harmony, and color scales. Through a range of technical and expressive projects students develop a critical and structural understanding of color’s role in a composition. Sample projects include: analog and digital exercises that focus on Joseph Alber’s seminal handbook Interaction of Color, three-dimensional color assemblages, traditional observational painting, and immersive installation works that incorporate collage, sculpture and light and video projection. Students develop skills to analyze, interpret, and create works in which color, its components, and modifiers are integral to the composition. Students understand and recognize the complexity and inter-relatedness of color. Critiques are held at regular intervals.
