No matter which creative industry you plan on stepping into, they all have at least one thing in common: strong grasp of color theory is an absolute must. In this course, we will make learning the basics of color fun and easy to understand. First we'll break down color and learn three different ways to describe it. Next we'll learn about additive and subtractive color models before spending some time with the color wheel learning about color harmonies and color temperature. We will wrap things up by learning how color relationships affect our perception of color and how color can affect our moods and emotions. After completing this course, you'll have a solid foundation of color knowledge on which to build going forward with your creative career. Software required: Photoshop CS6, Illustrator CS6.
