Integrating interdisciplinary studies in Education and Visual Arts, this Visual Arts senior capstone project explores the visual experience in elementary schools, from the physical classroom setup to individual elements (posters, signage, etc.). With emphasis on color, subject matter, interactivity, and space, this project combines research on classroom setting and material design, patterns of effective teaching, best practices for elementary education, color theory, and color psychology. The project cumulated in a scale model of a classroom that implements elements of the research and offers one example of the research in practice.
