The Power of Color

This program offers an explanation of how the human eye sees color, how color can enhance architectural spaces, how lighting is crucial to color and how color harmonies work.

Color is a universal component of all living things. Its influence has profound effects in all aspects of life. The better one understands how "seeing and vision" are distinguished, how light influences color, how pigments are harmonized and how humans respond to color and physical and psychological levels, the more one can confidently make color choices. In order to manipulate color one needs to be familiar with the basic structure of color, its vocabulary and rules of interaction. This program will focus on the use of color in architectural spaces as well as color in branding and color trends. Color decks, LRV, light measurements, CRI and Kelvin will also be discussed. As well as paint companies and history of pigments and "color blindness".

Christie Jones, BA, IACC-NA (International Association of Color Consulting-North America) is a Color Consultant and Interior Designer for Healthcare.
