What is Human Art?

Combining principles of art, design, color theory and psychology, Human Art is a one of a kind approach to understanding personality in a completely observable way.

Human Art teaches how we can merely look at someone and draw conclusions based on characteristics such as the colors they relate to, the lines in their bone structure, and the movement they display. These outward characteristics are clues to who we are on the inside.

There are four Harmonies or Designs—Saturated, Whitened, Grayed and Blackened—that people relate to. Named for the color wheel they relate to, each has distinct characteristics and personality traits associated with it that can be easily identified using principles of color, line, sound and movement.

Every person has some combination of these 4 Harmonies; usually one that is predominant and the other three providing influences in varying amounts to the way that harmony is manifested. The unique combination of these 4 Harmonies in every individual is known as their “Personal Design.” 

Using this unique methodology, we can find confidence and understanding of both ourselves and others. The knowledge of Human Art: The Original Personality Test can be used in all aspects of life: personal development, relationships, customer service and more.
