One of the most poplar classes here in the library is the color class. Often taught by Greg, the class covers color systems by Munsell and Albers that use objects and prints to explore color interaction.  Being the ever vigilant library staff we are we keep our eyes open for new ways to study color.  The Munsell hue test is online here, and can be a fun way to test your skills from the comfort of your sofa.

If that whet your appetite, designers Maria Munuera and Mark MacKay have created Color to test all of your hue and saturation skills. Be forewarned this game is not for the faint of heart. (Full disclosure: I quit in the middle of complimentary.)

After that task has sapped you of all your color distinguishing skills you can start at the beginning again with this charming video from Sesame Street and the band OK Go about primary colors.  Ah going back to basics feels good.
