Black is the absence of light. It is not a colour, even in the art realm it isn't counted as a colour (nor is white).

Science and art both agree that it is not a colour.

Chemistry will confirm black is a color using molecular theory.

black is as much a color as white. absence of color could be said for both..hence if white is considered a color then so is black.

No. White is different.

Within art, both are not colours.

However, within the light spectrum white technically IS a colour. White is a result of all the colours combining. Black is when there is no light. If I go any deeper explaining that I'll end up mind-ninja'd again over the fact that black is devoid of light and how colours really work and-and-and *brain short-circuits*

Under light theory (The visible light you can see):
Light is the combination of all colors in even proportions
Black is the absence of all light (not considered a color)
--Main theory is that no combination of light will yield black.

Under molecular theory (Your painting supplies):
Light is the absence of all pigmentation (not considered a color)
Black is the combination of all pigmentation in even proportions.
--Main theory is that no combination of molecules will yield white.
