Exploring Color Theory

Have you ever wondered why specific colors can make you feel hungry or calm? Color theory is both the science and art of utilizing colors. It explains the perception of color and the visual effect of different colors, mixing, matching, and contrasting with each other. This class will explore basic color theory and examine the psychology of color and how it influences our emotions. Join HCP instructor Valerie Yaklin-Brown, and start exploring the impact of using color vs. black and white and how to best use color to serve your work’s content and best express your ideas!
