CDIL216 Color for Illustrators 3 cr.

Color is a powerful aspect of an illustrator’s education. In response to this assertion, this studio course draws upon the understanding of color theory -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 investigate the complexity and interrelatedness of elements of color - its perceptual, emotional/psychological, technical and aesthetic aspects. Students are required to 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 for storytelling.
