Workbook activities and artist-inspired assignments include options for students to use paper and multimedia applications such as paint, color paper, digital and film cameras, and cell phones equipped with digital cameras. Workbook space is provided for students to input assignments illustrating their understanding of the concepts and connecting the student learning experience to the world around them. This highly visual text will explore and apply the principles of color and design and help stir the imagination of today's art and design students.
