Colors... Why are they so important? Color Wheel
We learned about colors since we first started learning how to speak, but we aren't taught why colors are so important.
Colors can say a lot about who we are and how we are feeling. When we are surrounded by certain colors, it can affect
our mood and our interpretation of something. For instance, if you were in a light blue room you may feel a sense of calmness.
But if you were in a dark red room, you may feel irritated or anger.
Color is a vital element in an art work because it can either help promote a message being conveyed, or it can hinder it.
The Color Wheel, or Color Circle was first designed by Sir Isaac Newton in 1666 as a tool to help combine colors in a pleasing way. Many have redesigned the color wheel since 1666 to teach and to understand colors and color relationships better.
