The Importance of Color Theory in Painting. Color Theory was a required foundations course in the Visual Communication Design program at BYU, so all the design students took it–the interior designers, graphic designers, industrial designers, and the illustrators.

That last group included me. I had grown up in Silicon Valley and never heard of art school, so when I found out you could get a degree by taking drawing and design classes I was thrilled and slightly suspicious, and signed up immediately. I remember going to the campus bookstore and buying the mysterious and costly “Munsell student kit,’ which was the first assignment we did in class. We all sorted those lovely little color chips with our brand new No. 11 X-acto blades and the grammar of hue, value, and chroma was explained. I had been one of those kids who always sorted my crayons by color (rainbow order, of course).
