This presentation (in PDF
format) was created on Google Slides and covers the basics of color theory as needed for technical theater design. With the exception of the last slide (which refers to researching your period for specific color implications) everything in it is applicable to general color theory.
These attractive slides cover a range of concepts sorted into Value, Hue, Saturation,
and Color Psychology
. You can see a full list of concepts covered in the PDF preview provided before purchasing.
These are the concepts I found most useful for designing lighting, costumes and sets, but are a pretty strong overview of introductory color theory. This does NOT cover more advanced concepts like relative color and optical mixing.
This presentation can also be purchased as part of the Design 101 Bundle.
