Munsell Color System is a framework of practical color theory commonly adopted by the industry. However, it has not been well adopted in the area of art education at tertiary institutions teaching color theory. The popular model used in current art schools is the Itten Color Wheel. A paper was published to introduce Munsell Color System for color theory training for art students. The Munsell Color System is a 3D model, therefore visualization is not as direct as a 2D Itten Color Wheel. The objective is to develop a 3D visualization software and color analytical tool to assist students’ learning of Munsell Color System as well as allowing self-driven learning through a new color analytical tool for analysis of color scheme of important and relevant artworks like masterpieces and students’ artworks.
