COLOUR Your World

Colour Your World A discussion about how we perceive colour, how it impacts us, affects our mood, well-being and even our ability to learn. We will explore how these impacts change as we age. We will consider how to intentionally apply colour to various spaces as we design learning environments.
  • What is colour
  • How do we perceive colour and how does it affect us?
  • What are the impacts of each colour on our cognitive, psychological and physiological health and well being?
  • How do gradients of hue and shade impact the effect colour has on us?
  • How does colour impact our learning?
  • How does the way colour impact us change as we age?
  • How to intentionally apply colour to various spaces and environments in the design of learning environments
