This is an introductory course that focuses on the multiple disciplines and concepts that impact the foundation of design at both a micro and macro level. Students will be introduced to the basic elements and principles that demonstrate visual organization and provide the tools for analyzing and synthesizing the application of design. This course will provide the theoretical underpinnings that allow students to creatively apply knowledge to both two- and three-dimensional design assignments and projects. In addition, the course may include field trips, collaborative and individual assignments, and in-class studio/lab work.
Supplies and materials to be purchased by the student: A list of supplies and materials required will be given to students after the first class.
