Digital Color: Style + Representation in Science
Course No. LSI 264 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Matthew Brownstein
This course is required for sophomore Life Sciences Illustration majors and is open as an elective on a space-available basis to all students interested in techniques and concepts in traditional and digital color media. The course will focus on principles of color theory, light on form, line, texture, aesthetic impact, and accuracy of content in the illustration of scientific information and editorial content. Through research, planning, and the application of medical and scientific knowledge, the students use color to effectively communicate conceptual and observational problems. Assignments focus on the creative use of color to express specific communication objectives to a range of audiences for both majors in Life Sciences Illustration and other majors of study. This course supplements the integration of traditional and digital illustration techniques for non-majors, focused on editorial, and narrative-based course work. Offered spring.
