Why study color theory? Well, the easy answer is so that you will have more information to guide you when you are creating things. A more complete answer is also a more complex one.
My bet is that you don’t realize that color is energy and therefore the best way for you to control that energy is to learn to harness it. To harness it you must first understand the kind of power it holds.
Each color has a different energy and just like people, colors behave differently in combination with other colors. We can call that the interaction of color a system. It is a system based on theories made and asserted hundreds of years ago. Though those theories still stand to this day, we add new and intriguing information to the system all the time. We now know more about how light is seen by the human eye, how color affects the human psyche and that the colors we see with our eyes are our brains way of making sense of the light waves moving through the atmosphere.
Back to that easy answer, “to guide you when you are making things”; learning to harness the energy of color, understanding the interaction of colors and becoming acquainted with as many varieties of color as possible will make it easier and more enjoyable for you to make more beautiful, interesting and successful art, quilts, jewelry, whatever your heart desires.
So, come along with me, art quilter and instructor, Heather Thomas and let me introduce you to a system that just might rock your world as you learn new meanings for the words scale, value, harmony, texture and so much more.
