Color is arguably one of the most important elements of design. Use this presentation to help students gain an understanding of the color wheel and its interrelationships. Topics addressed in presentation: the color wheel, primary colors, secondary colors, tertiary colors, color terminology (hue, tint, shade, intensity, value, tone, complement, neutrals, pigment), warm and cool colors, and color schemes (monochromatic, complementary, split complementary, double complementary, analogous, and triadic). All concepts relate back to interior design and pictures are used for all topics to increase student understanding. An short assignment is on the last slide relating to color schemes and using color vocabulary.
