This Power-point presentation includes 131 slides and well over 300 images explaining all aspects of color. All art teachers teach about color…the science, art and psychology of color. After years of teaching these concepts myself, I decided to combine all of my smaller Power-points, worksheets, and mini-lessons into one enormous presentation that would logically and sequentially take an all-encompassing look at all things color. The presentation is split into three parts: The Science of color, The Art of Color, and The Psychology of Color. This presentation is intended for use at the high school and middle school levels, but could certainly be used at the college level, or easily be used in the upper elementary.
Below us a breakdown of what’s included in the presentation.
Slides 1-35 (The Science of Color)
You’ll learn about Isaac Newton, and his contributions to color such as his tests with prisms, and his introduction of the first color wheel. You’ll also learn about other objects that refract light like rainbows. Rainbows (double rainbows, triple and beyond) are explained through images and margin text. Next you’ll learn about both “additive” and “subtractive” color mixing. You’ll learn all about white light and black (the absence of light) and color wavelengths. Next we’ll explore the differences between science and art as it relates to color. Finally pigments are introduced, illustrated, and explained. From natural to synthetic and even digital color, the evolution of color is explored.
Slides 36-77 (The Art of Color)
Numerous color wheels are studied for their differences and various uses. Color theory and color schemes are introduced and range from the most common to more interesting groupings and even color anomalies. Some of the color schemes introduced (broken down into great detail and illustrated in easy to understand terms) are: primary, secondary, intermediate, complementary, split-complementary, monochromatic, neutral, analogous, triads, achromatic, and even fluorescents and metallic. Plenty of examples of their use in art and how to locate them using the color wheel are thoroughly explained.
Slides 78-131 (The Psychology of Art)
What are the moods and personalities associated with color? You’ll explore numerous emotion color wheels which show how we feel about color and what color says about us. Each of the common colors are looked at in great detail, one at a time, to learn about their psychological effect on our lives. All primaries and secondary’s are visited, as well as black, white, brown, and pink.
I’m quite proud of this all-inclusive look at the world of color, and I trust that you and your students will be equally amazed and eager to put this knowledge into practice. Enjoy!
