Crown Paints has launched ‘Colour in Design’, a suite of Continual Professional Development (CPD) courses which aim to help architects, designers and specifiers to advance their knowledge and skills around how colour can be used to support their work.
There are eight courses overall, all of which have been approved by The Royal Institute of Architects (RIBA) and The British Institute of Interior Design (BIID).
The courses cover a range of topics including Colour Families, which studies each colour’s history, associations and variations, and Colour Design for Dementia, which explores how to guide the design of a dementia care setting.
There are also courses on Inclusive Colour & the Equality Act, Colour Application, Colour Notation, Light & Lighting, Colour Psychology and Physiology and Technical Colour.
This year Crown Paints is also utilising Material Source Studio, the state-of-the-art hub of inspiration for architects and designers in central Manchester to deliver CPD courses.
Recognised as an industry expert in colour and as a trusted partner for the specification sector, Crown Paints offers a range of services to support and inform painting, decorating and architecture professionals, within which Continual Professional Development is a key pillar.
Jemma Saunders, Colour Consultant at Crown Paints, says: “At Crown Paints, we know that professional development is a crucial and ongoing requirement for our customers, which is why we’re continually striving to advance our training and skills service.
“The Colour CPDs are aimed at a wide audience, whether it’s a student thinking about a career in painting or a professional wanting to improve their skills, and as with all of the courses, they’re all delivered in a bitesized and engaging format.
“We’re proud to offer a variety of courses to help professionals keep on top of key developments in the field and to be strengthening our CPD offering that promise to deliver new and exciting insights from the world of colour.”
