Color Theory: Thomas Bosket, Faculty

Color Theory class

Students were asked to match the color of their skin in paint. This exercise addresses how we refer to colors through language, skin is white, black, yellow, red, etc.. but these categories do not even begin to communicate, or clarify, the complex issues surrounding skin color. In finding the perfect match they realize that they are related to others in ways they never presupposed and that their actual color is far from how they refer to themselves when speaking.

  1. Tom was the best teacher for someone like me, going back to school to study graphic design. He brought me, and the class, up to speed fast with a unique approach to our assignments. I’m not surprised by this project which is another great example. Way to go!
