When I teach color, I introduce my students to a new awareness of color—what Albers called "an eye for color." In Principles of Visual Language at the School of Visual Arts, we study fundamental color design concepts, including Johannes Itten's seven color contrasts, and Albers' color illusion experiments. Students leave the class with a creative toolkit—a set of color principles that can be applied in their work.
