This course explores the practical 2D applications of the fundamentals of light and color. Lectures and demonstrations cover topics such as bounced light, camera effects, value patterns, shadows, and atmospherics. Value scale and color wheel exercises, and at-home assignments in traditional media reinforce learned successful applications of color harmonies and atmospheric principles. Gaining experience in the foundation of color provides students with the ability to expand on existing visual techniques. Students are expected to cover the cost of supplies, estimated between $80 to $120.
