Color – the particular hue something has as a result of reflecting differing wavelengths of light from the visible spectrum. Hue refers to “what color something is;” “Value” is how light or dark something is (dark green has a deeper value than light green, for example); “Saturation” or “Intensity” is how bright or dull a color is. Saturated colors are vivid and pure, while low saturation looks muddy or dark. Texture – another attribute of form that refers to the tactile quality of a surface, or how it feels to the touch (rough, smooth, polished, grainy, etc.).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
