Color Theory
Spring 2023
Taught By: Richard Beenen
Section: A

CRN: 6988

Credits: 2

This course is a total immersion in the understanding and usage of color. Students analyze the cultural, social and psychological implications of color in everyday life. Our perceptions of color and our understanding of it through particular brain processes are addressed through physics and perceptual exercises. Color interactions (including Relativity, the Illusion of Transparency, the Bezold Effect, Redistribution and Contrasts of Extension, Clash, Vibration and Spread) are thoroughly studied through a series of projects culminating in a final that focuses on the use of color in each student’s specific discipline. Critical theory is addressed in readings.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students, except for BFA and BBA students.
