The course looks at basic design theory, colour, texture, pattern , balance. You will work from an individual source to produce original ideas. You will learn how to draw a scale plan with colour elevation, produce a mood board and a sample board with emphasis on creativity. We look at colour combinations, lighting, textiles, paints. The final outcome will be a well designed room, complete with plans, elevations and swatches.
There is a small amount of homework or research to do in preparation for each lesson.
