Color is visible energy. As such, its effective use is essential in practically all aspects of art and design.
Media may include acrylic or gouache paint, Cray-Pas, pastels, colored pencils, inks, or collage materials. This course is required for A.F.A. majors but is designed for students of all levels and experience, including non-art majors.
There is no pre-requisite for this course although students may find it helpful to take Drawing 1 or 2D Design before taking ARTS 1020 - Color.
Studio: 6 hours
Color ARTS 1020
