CDIL330 Color for Illustrators 3 cr.

Color is easily the most powerful and neglected aspect of an illustrator’s education. In response to this assertion, this course is conceived as a studio course for illustrators which draws upon color theory for understanding (though the steadfast focus remains on practical application, on tutoring intuition, heightening awareness, and refining skill). Through a practical exploration of theoretical/conceptual issues, students become aware of the complexity and interrelatedness of elements of color - its perceptual, emotional/psychological, technical and aesthetic aspects. Students complete a series of studio projects emphasizing the informed intuitive awareness, creative use, and practical application of color as a formal means of visual communication and expression - as a means of storytelling.
