Lighting for the Home Studio


Light is an essential element of our environment because it is through light that we register visual information, perceive the form and color of objects and space, and are able to accomplish tasks. Lighting design is integral to architecture and interior design, and plays a very important role in the success of designed interior spaces. This is an introductory, non technical studio in residential lighting design. Topics to be covered include: light sources, fixture selection, color rendering, analysis of installations, and controls. We will discuss various areas of the home and their particular light requirements. Field trips may be included. Prerequisites: VSC154 Drafting for Interior Decorators, HT227 Color Theory in Practice for the Interior Decorator, and SAC112 Interior Design Introductory Studio.
