Colour probably has more magical properties than you realise! On this course you will learn how colour can be used to manipulate the perceived dimensions of space, psychologically influence another person and create colour illusions through juxtaposition. This very practical course will guide you through the processes of mixing colour to your exact requirements and develop a colour palette for use in interiors. You will learn about the history of colour, as well as the individual properties of particular colours and how this can affect the way you use them. You will be introduced to the technical terms associated with colour specification and the five basic colour schemes that designers use and why.
You will leave the course able to mix tints, shades and tones, create a successful colour palette and have confidence in discussing colour in a professional context using the correct technical terms. You will also have a greater understanding of the concepts of colour theory and how you can apply it to your own work.
Who Should Attend
Anyone with an interest in interior design who wants to develop their awareness of colour or their knowledge of colour within design generally.
