Colour is a joint project of three departments of arts and visual communication of the Swiss Universities of Applied Sciences (SUPSI-DACD; Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst, Luzern; Hochschule der Künste Bern) and of the Faculty of Communication Science of the Università della Svizzera italiana aiming to renew and to improve teaching of arguments related to the colour in professional schools, in UAS and in continuing education.Colour will produce high-quality contents and exercises both on the fundamentals of colour (physics, perception, processes), as well as on the use of colour in specific domains of arts and visual communication, like printing, video, industrial design, restoration etc. Moreover, the specialized modules will comprise a laboratory activity based on collaborative project work by students; an on-line cooperation environment will foster collaboration among school and professionals of different domains.Colour provides for three major application areas: use in the UAS Bachelor of Arts to reduce face-to-face theory lessons and thus to free time for creative work of students; adoption in training of teachers both in UAS and in professional schools (thanks especially to the collaboration with the Swiss Institute of Pedagogy for Professional Teachers); finally, use in continuing education and as stand-alone modules for professionals needing quick reference and training in selected areas.
