Theory inputs on colour perception, colour in painting and colour semiotics (etc.)
Part 1: Colour as the basic material of the painter
The production of watercolours. Colour manipulation. Works on paper.
Part 2: Colour and cultural history
Historical and current overview of colouring material (dyestuffs and pigments). The manufacture and application of selected mineral pigments and natural dyestuffs. We will also look at the local value and application of colours in different cultures.
Part 3: We will look at colour as a product and in business, for example in textiles and fashion.
We will examine the manufacture of coloured textile surfaces and the use of additive colour mixing.
The exposure to colour can be an intense experience and it can be investigated and reflected upon on different levels. It is an exciting sensation caused by material and colour perception. The students acquire and refine their vocabulary of colour and colour phenomena and are then in the position to use this knowledge in a purposeful way.
