Shillito Design School: Australian Colour Education in The '70s
This book showcases the work of Australian colour designer, educator and artist, Eva Fay, produced during her time at the Shillito Design School in Sydney, Australia 1976-1977, and includes key strategies for understanding colour organisation, colour mixing, colour planning and application.It pays tribute to the immense contribution that the English educator and designer, Phyllis Shillito gave to the Australian design and art community. Her teaching at both the Shillito Design School (1962-1980) and at the National Art School in Sydney (1925-1960), had an enormous influence on numerous artists, designers, colourists, art and design teachers and heads of school. Shillito (1895-1980), originally from West Yorkshire, England, created a unique set of colour education principles based on her wealth of knowledge of colour and experience in design. Many of her students are scattered throughout the world making their mark in all endeavours of the design and art worlds.Eva used much of the knowledge gained at the Shillito Design School during this period to become a renowned Australian colour and design educator at the tertiary level in Sydney, and she co-founded the acclaimed School of Colour and Design in 1983 based partially on the teachings of Phyllis Shillito.This is an invaluable historical reference documenting the teaching of colour at one of Australia's most innovative design schools. It has 59 pages with approximately 85 colour illustrations.
