A bright start to the Year!

AS Fine Art students returned to College after the Christmas festivities, but they were far from gloomy!

Instead of a grey January they are enjoying a bright start to the new year as we embark on two weeks of colour theory! Students are mixing an array of colours. During the first week students played the Coca-Cola game, attempting to mix that ubiquitous red from memory! An exercise developed by the artist and teacher Josef Albers!

Print Academy students started the new year by learning about screen printing.
Students learnt about the technical aspects of screen printing as well as seeing colour theory in action! Students printed with Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black and were amazed by the results! What an amazing set of prints they created!

Colour Theory

Colour is but a sensation and has no existence outside the nervous system of living beings.”  Nicholas Ogden Rood

What is colour?

A Level Art Students got all Bahaus during colour theory week!

Students used ‘The Interaction of colour’ by Artist Josef Albers to explore ideas in relation to colour theory.

Students were asked to consider the way in which we perceive colour, how colour is effected by adjacent colours and the cultural associations of colour and Language!

Students played the coca cola red game, where colour memory was tested! Students also compared touch sensation to visual sensation and how this could be compared in relation to warm and cold! Get the bucket of iced water and hot water out!

All in all, a really fun and informative week was had by all, where students tried to deepen their understanding of colour and colour terminology!
