Color In the Classroom
There are several very interesting articles on “color in the classroom” and the impact colors have on students’ emotions, productivity, communication and learning. Studies on emotion and color show a direct link between color and and positive and negative feelings. The use of color also helps define a room’s purpose, whether it is for creative thinking, quiet study, collaboration, or relaxation.
In classrooms for younger children, colors can be used to help them understand how certain areas of a room are used. For example, the blue chairs in the corner may be used as a reading and relaxation area, while the red table is a free-play area. Children thrive in spaces filled with color, tending to be more alert and attentive.
Color in Common Areas
The choice of colors in common areas should reflect the purpose of the area. Entry ways and lunchrooms are the perfect locations to utilize the school’s colors. The library, which may have multiple functions, can be color-coded to not only direct students to an area, but to also enhance the experience of the area.
