Colour Theory


Modul: Darstellen & Gestalten 2. 3 CP B.Sc.

Lecturers: University Prof. Thomas Schmitz, Carolin Lange, Sina Hensel

The course starts with an experience- and perception-based approach to the topic of colour and encourages individual, playful approaches and experiments in dealing with colours and materials from the very beginning. The practical handling of colours according to their effects, their materiality and their mutual interaction takes place in a sequence of exercises, which are carried out independently and accompanied by a series of impulse lectures. This phenomenological approach is intended to encourage the development of a personal attitude towards the subject of colour from the very beginning. Only then will colour theoretical basics, compositional aspects and colour space models up to colour systems and collections be dealt with in order to systematically justify and expand the previously intuitive approach.
