Classroom Colors Impact on Learning

Ms. Przepiora’s classroom full of green.

Teachers at RAHS take special care to create spaces for learning.  One area they should pay attention to are the colors that dominate their spaces.  According to Psychology Today “colors do more than we think. They can affect your mood, energy levels, sleep pattern, and blood pressure.” Colors also increase our visual memory as well as the emotion of the memory.

The color white can increase stress and decrease concentration, warm colors like yellow, pink, and red can be energizing; however when too intense these colors can be irritating. Blue, green, and purple can have calming effects. The color gray can be more depressing than black.

So if the science behind color is true, how do the colors of the classrooms here at RAHS affect the students and faculty?
