A wide range of problems concerning light and colour are being worked on in various art techniques and media traditional and digital alike. This module relates to the programme as a vital core for understanding 3D modelling in creative industries.

Students need to take this module to expose students to a wide variety of experiences concerting problems of light and colour vital to their development as artists. This module exposes students to not only analyse and recreate colour and light relations and situations but also presents methodologies of creating specific light and colour as part of creating conceptual art solutions contributing to the development of student’s creativity.
