ART1211 Two Dimensional Design Foundations

This course introduces students to the principles of visual organization and color theory. Through a series of design assignments, students explore the relationships among point, line, shape, value, texture and color and learn to arrange these elements to create an aesthetic gestalt. Students investigate natural and geometric systems of organization to inform and inspire their designs. They conduct studio experiments that stimulate creativity and they learn to follow a creative process that includes stages for planning, exploring, executing, evaluating and revising their designs. Through participation in critiques, students learn to respond to works of art through intuitive contemplation and explicit analysis. Students complete a portfolio of design projects of increasing complexity and participate in a student exhibit. Credits: 3.000
