Abstract

This study investigates whether or not undergraduate students are able to express their emotion using colour. This study involves discovering how the student’s associate emotion with colour. This study will use 100 undergraduate students from a few private colleges in the Klang Valley, Malaysia area. The students will express their emotion using colours in a blank A4 paper for 1½ hours during a class. The student’s expression will be used to measure their level of understanding the basic principles of colour and to gauge their understanding on their understanding on the influences of colour on a person’s emotion. The conclusion will be drawn by having five lecturers to assess their artwork. Hands-on experience in colour is important and invaluable. The sampling of the activity is extremely helpful in this study. By conducting a study on the colouring activity, we plan to show that colours do have an impact on emotion in both positive and negative ways.

Keywords: Colour psychology, emotion, colour association, paintings, artwork
