This 'Classroom Color Project' addresses local classrooms designs with a goal to elevate the level of academic performance. This is a complimentary service for the first six schools to sign up for the project. As a community, we need to elevate and recognize the role of color as a tool to shape behavior and enhance the academic experience. Participants will learn how a good color system can contribute to classroom performance and the morale of students and staff.
The past United States Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy stated, “along with nutrition and exercise, the impact of the environment is emotionally significant to health and well-being.”
“A school’s physical environment has a powerful psycho-physiological impact on its students. Appropriate color design is important in creating surroundings that are conducive to learning and studying, promoting learning and emotional well-being. Many cases of irritability, premature fatigue, lack of interest, and behavioral problems can be attributed directly to incorrect environment conditions involving poorly planned color and lighting. White walls contribute to glare, while painted walls reduce shadows and glare and help students focus.” said Wilde
To fulfill on the project, solicitation requests will be made from paint companies, painting contractors and parents for tax-deductible donations for paint and painting services, for the promise of fresh color and inspired learning. Ms. Wilde developed this endeavor while participating in a Landmark leadership program. Part of the coursework was to create a project that benefits the community. Landmark is an international training and development company, who is known for offering this flagship course. The Landmark Forum (www.landmarkworldwide.com).
