Schools using Orange

"Orange is very blatant and vulgar. It makes you immediately start having feelings," said Wolf Kahn, an American painter known for his use of expressive colors. Like yellow and red, orange is often associated with the heat of fire, the warmth of the sun. It can be seen as an aggressive color, frequently used on warning signs along the side of the road. Ancient cultures like the Egyptians and Chinese practiced chromotherapy, the practice of using colors for healing purposes. Sometimes referred to as light therapy, chromotherapy is still popular today among practitioners of holistic and alternative treatments, and many believe orange can heal the lungs and increase energy levels. Following the idea that orange increases energy levels, many also believe that orange can stimulate the appetite and that it encourages socialization. If blue and green are tranquil colors, then orange is at the opposite extreme - there's nothing even remotely calm about orange!
