The book is broken down into sections that (to anyone who's had art training) seem simple enough: chiaroscuro, form, color, rhythm, etc. but Itten teaches not so much the technical aspect of art as a new way of seeing the world, a way of creating from the whole body and mind, not just with a paintbrush (or computer graphics program).
The sections are all punctuated with many examples of student work that relate to the topic covered. Often, it is these examples that really drive his points home.
Just as Itten believed that everyone was capable of being creative and thought the basic course was valuable to all levels of art students and even teachers, this book is applicable for both those who are looking for an introduction into creating, and those who consider themselves expert artists already. I guarantee there will be at least one idea in the book to make you stop and ponder and suddenly challenge your way of thinking on the matter.
In sum: A good (but not great) text when considered on its own merits, and an average text when considered in conjunction with Itten's other works.
the basic course at the bauhaus and later
from rear cover"..the basic course at the bauhaus was designed as a trial period to judge students with varying educational backgrounds, to determine their creative talent, to help them in their choice of a career, and to teach them elementary design as a basis for future careers in the arts. each of the over 200 illustrations reproduced here is described in detail to help the reader understand the purpose of art teaching..........the book has universal appeal for a basic course as a means of individual creative growth and it can be used today by students and art teachers as a foundation for their own basic course.."
