FF120 Color Design with Forough Abadian

The course teaches first-year students fundamental skills related to 2D color and design to explore design principles with color theory. Design principles include visual organization such as composition and pattern and all visual elements, including text, that work together in a piece of art or design. Color theory includes additive (RGB) and subtractive (CMY) color differentiation and application in physical and digital forms, color contrasts, optical illusions, and physio-psychological effects of color. The combined skills of learning design and color help students explore 2D art and design with digital and mixed media for creating work with intention, meaning, and narrative while considering the cultural impact of design and color.
