I Nyoman Larry Julianto, Cokorda Alit Artawan


The background of this research is an effort to create a ‘concept of visual stimulus’ in the involvement of colors in the student’s learning space of grade 1 – 3 in North Bali. Researchers understand that color interactivity in the learning space is able to stimulate motivation and increase student’s interest of learning. But until now there has not been found any justification regarding the color that has a ‘value’ in that role. Qualitative analysis with this procedural method is started by collecting the data on students who are given treatment in the form of a simulation of classroom color changes through 360º video (virtual reality). The object requirements used as the research sample are schools that apply the majority of one dominant color in their students' classrooms. The results of the study stated that students in grades 1 – 3 as the subject of the study, had a tendency to choose the same color before and after getting treatment. The colors chosen by students in grades 1 – 3 have a tendency to have ‘cool’ nuance. It is suspected because of the influence of students daily interactivity on the color nuance that are dominated by green in their school environment. Few students are interested in choosing colors that tend to be ‘warm’. Cultivating self–creativity to strengthen the character or students self concept, a learning space that involves more varied colors as an element of visual stimulus is needed because the more they interact with color, the more visual image references they will get. The effects of color on learning space must be able to provide value interaction which is able to balance children’s mental and emotion. Colors are also expected to shape a children's personality according to their personal identity and be able to reduce their boredom in enjoying the learning process in the classroom.
