      What about Blue for creativity?

      Subject: [art_education] colors

       

      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,

      MaryJo

          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.

            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

              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 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!)
