Colour Theory Essay

Compare and contrast the use of colour in two works by an artist/artists of your choice.

Your essay should be at least 1,000 (VC) 1500 (ID) words long. You may choose any artist or designer from 1750 to the present day. You may look at two works by the same artist or one work from two different artists (Interior designers you must look at least ONE work by an architect or Interior Designer.) Your essays must be typed and double spaced (as this paragraph is). You should provide illustrations of your chosen works. Where you reference books and quotations you must use APA citation. You must provide a Works Cited list and a Bibliography if necessary.

I advise you write an outline of your essay before you begin writing the text. Show the structure of your argument in bullet points; what you hope to show in each section and the references you will use to make your point.

Grading will take into account:

Understanding and completing the brief on time

Broad purposeful research

Clear, accurate analysis of colour use, using Ittenas Seven Colour Contrast, Depth and Harmony principles covered in class

Development of personal response and argument

Good presentation

You must present your paper to the class on the class before the last class of term.
