ART 111 DESIGN: COLOR
Description: An introduction and exploration of both theoretical and practical considerations of
color as it pertains to design. Includes in-class studio work, lectures & discussions,
critique sessions, and extensive studio time outside of class.
Projects will involve making a color wheel and several color charts for theoretical
understanding. Students will also develop original, creative designs that utilize
systematic color interactions for practical approaches to color design problems.
Acrylic paint will be the main medium used for most projects.
Objectives: 1) To understand the basic principles of color theory.
2) To be introduced to the vocabulary involved in the study of color.
3) To develop basic skills in mixing paint necessary to realizing a design in color
from concept to full actualization.
4) To understand the aesthetic and practical purposes of color used in design.
5) To appreciate the use of color in design and fine art through time and within
Textbook: No textbook is required for this class however a separate Color Bibliography
sheet with a list of books will be handed out requiring students to choose one
book to write a short journal style* book report.
*Journal style means including personal reflections on what you are reading
as well as the traditional book report focus on outlining basic information.
Due Date for Book Report:
Supplies: See the separate SUPPLY LIST handout.
There will be approximately 28-30 assignments over the quarter including the
Book Report already mentioned above. Assignments will be given out on 3-4
“Assignment Sheet” handouts but require daily explanations/clarifications so
attentive attendance is required.
Grading: Minimum Workload: Students must 1.complete, turn in on time, receive a passing grade on a minimum of 75% of all the assignments, 2. complete and receive a passing grade on the book report, and 3. have no more than 3 absences in order to receive a passing grade for the quarter.
Late assignments will be accepted only up to 3 days late and all late assignments' grades will be lowered one grade step for each day late (note that Wednesday to Monday will count as 3 days late).
Critiques: Participation in Critiques is mandatory - grades will be lowered on all assignments that have not participated in a critique session for that particular assignment. Students are often given the opportunity to redo assignments after a critique session which is why full participation in critique sessions is mandatory.
Attendance: 4 or more absences will result in an automatic failure of the course for the quarter. 3 arrive-late/leave-early incidents will count as a 1 day absence.
Quarter grades will be based on taking the total of the individual assignment grades and dividing it by the number of required assignments to find the average grade earned.
The 2 lowest grades of the quarter are dropped and students are given the opportunity to redo a maximum of 3 assignments to attempt to increase a grade.
