    I am painting a wall in my classroom so that we can install a mural piece. The color of the background could really be anything, and I want to choose a color

      I am painting a wall in my classroom so that we can install a mural piece. The color of the background could really be anything, and I want to choose a color that will encourage creativity but not make the students too A. Apathetic (ha ha) B. Wild. I want a middle ground...these are students ages 15-18 - I have done a little research and can't decide which is best....all colors seems to have a positive and negative side. For instance,
      RED (from Wikipedia)....
      Passion, strength, energy, fire, love, sex, excitement, speed, heat, arrogance, ambition, leadership, masculinity, power, danger, gaudiness, blood, war, anger, revolution, viva la revolucion(Che), radicalism, socialism, communism, aggression, summer, autumn, stop,
       
      STRENGTH, AMBITION, LEADERSHIP - GREAT!
      SEX? ARROGANCE....REVOLUTION?!?..not so much in high school classroom....
       
      So, what I am asking, does anyone know alot about this and does anyone have experience with something like this? I need to tell the custodian soon....he wants to paint it this Saturday!
       
      thanks,

            I would suggest a blue, and for a calming effect it might lean towards green- medium hues, not light or dark. Red would be way to intense, as would Black.

              green- medium hues, not light or dark. Red would be way to intense, as
              would Black. Black would be overwhelming. the only other color I
              would consider for a large wall background would be a yellow. I would
              lean towards a medium to darker yellow. A light yellow would be
              unpleasant on the eyes. Yellow has the effect of concentration and
              cheerfulness, while it's negative effect can be indulgence and
              slothfulness.
              Good luck on your mural.

              I have one red wall in my elementary classroom. I don t think it makes the kids wilder. I think it livens our room up. And it is a great color to display

                color to display artwork on...white mat looks great. Black mats pop
                too. My other fav color to use is blue. Blue is soothing, calming to
                me. And probably does influence creativity as it puts you in a calmer
                state, perhaps. But red is lively and wakes you up! I think either
                way would be great. I just would not paint a whole room red in an art
                room. My other walls now are off white, as are my cabinets. It's
                fresh and alive looking to me.

                    My walls in my room are pale yellow too! I love it! I have some exposed I beams in my
                    ceiling that are red and blue too. Unforunatley, the tiles in the hallway are seafoam
                    green....a real downer for hanging artwork (although the students use the grout lines to
                    hang work evenly!)
