Colour is a joint project between three Universities/Schools of Art and Design. The project’s aim is to revive the teaching of colour-related subjects at the universities of applied sciences, but also in vocational schools and in the field of further education generally.
Colour offers a range of tools that can be used in modular form in the various teaching environments. While one group of tools (e.g. physics, physiology or colour materials) offers a more general introduction to the subject, a second group deals with the job-specific aspects of the use of colour (e.g. in the fields of restoration, interior design, print or light art).
Students can acquire a general knowledge of the tools through illustrated introductions to the subject and interactive demonstrations, or in a (virtual) laboratory. Links providing structured access to extensive Web sources enable students to further explore particular themes.
Colour will be used in the following three main fields: in the Bachelor of Arts studies at the Schools of Art and Design, in teacher training (on individual aspects), in continuing education for professionals and for consultation by specialists who need a quick reference guide in a particular field.
