Observational Drawing & Exploration of Medias

This section introduces the elementary vocabulary that is essential in designing with color. Many students don't realize there are many THEORIES of Color that we utilize in the visual communication field. Color Theories change based on how an illustration, photograph, or design will be seen, printed or even where & how often. Without a solid foundation of Basic Color Theory, you will not be strong at utilizing the next theories.
