Colour and Light explores the principles that give objects form. The subject progresses from the study of light and shadow on individual objects to the interaction of light between objects. The course places a strong emphasis on rendering techniques with pencils, markers, and gouache in order to efficiently and effectively communicate lit surfaces.

As the subject progresses, students consider the interaction of light between objects within scenes. The scenes are divided into zones of light and shadow. These zones are understood through basic photographic principles. Real world conditions are also introduced, in preparation for environmental lighting.
