Color Across the Spectrum

Spring 2022

Taught By: Emily Barnett

Section: A

CRN: 7072

Credits: 3

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. How do the current fashion and design fields incorporate and envision color trends over time in urban culture? How do harmonic complementary and discordant uses of color apply to nature? Our perceptions of color and our understanding of it through particular brain processes are addressed through physics and perceptual exercises. Topics include illusion, light, vision, interpretation, symbolism, trends, and the history of pigments. A range of readings and media will broaden the student's awareness and creative practice. Students can customize their assignments to suit the needs of their specific discipline.

Open to: Parsons First Year students, and others, space provided.
