Assignment #14

Color Emotions Poster
Due Date: October 12

Practice what you learned so far about the emotional content of color.


  • Begin with a plain white sheet of paper and a pencil or pen.
  • In block letters, write at least ten words describing emotion from the Emotional Content of Colors page.
  • Turn the words all around. Make them fit together and fill up the page. If you can, make the letter shapes match the emotion.
  • I have about 19 words in my pencilled example below:

  • After you have the sheet filled with words, color in each word with the appropriate color, according to what you learned.
  • You may outline words in a dark color like black or gray.
  • You may leave the background white, or fill it with a single, very light color.
