Educating the changing world in the science of colour

Further & Higher Education

The Colour Experience is uniquely placed to help your FE & HE students in their studies. Our enthusiastic specialised education team can provide insightful presentations and workshops on a wide range of topics and themes relating to the science and technology of colour.

Presentations include:

Can you believe your eyes? – using visual illusions we explore the difference between vision and perception. Looking at a range of optical effects, this presentation is a must see for anyone using colour in designs.

Seeing Colour – an introduction to the physics, biology and evolution of colour vision, an explanation of colour blindness and an interactive colour vision test for participants.

Understanding Colour – a close look at the role colour plays in our lives. Colour theory, colour language and colour communication are all covered in this fascinating presentation.

Colour and sustainability – we all love to surround ourselves with colour, but just what impact do our fashion choices have on our environment. This thought-provoking presentation may not have all the answers, but it’ll certainly start your students asking the questions. Please contact us to discuss your students’ requirements.
