Will pour her heart into her presentation of
One color comes to mind when we think of Valentines Day. The hue of red is the color of love,
a symbol of strength, the blood of life in birth and war, always attracting and repelling us. Discussion around red and its companions on the color wheel will begin with perception and how light and pigment color wheels relate. We will investigate the five components of color and Johannes Itten’s seven Contrasts of Color. A review of color schemes from simple to complex will highlight this lively discussion of the theory of color including examples and applications!
