Color is everywhere in our daily lives. Color makes our lives more livable and
enthusiastic. People have used colors as a means of communication and
messaging for ages. They used colors to share their happiness and sorrows, or
even to warn against dangers. Today as well, colors are used as communication
tools that tell us what to do and how to act. Indoor spaces in which we spend our
lives, and objects, furniture and accessories used in these spaces are designed in
consideration of the fact that color is an inseparable part of life.
Color has a direct effect on all our emotions and activities, including happiness,
peacefulness, working pace, and eating. The aim of this course is to enable
participants to get familiar with and understand colors, and to develop awareness
of colors and to increase diversity in color use.
