Over the course of two class sessions, the students work on creating color palettes. The students work on their own. It is important to think about needed furniture, carpets, and tables. What items will stay in the room? What items will be added? What colors are they? The soundproofing wall carpet currently on display needs to stay. It is an attractive deep blue. Because it is (and will remain) a dominant feature in the room, the students use the deep blue as a main color to work off of.
After diving into their own color palette boards, the students convene. They have an open discussion about their chosen colors. Some colors are dropped. Some colors remain and are combined with new tones. The class displays three separate variations to be voted on by the community center patrons.
