ARTS 3335 Advanced Digital Design: Designing Spaces (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

This course explores the possibilities of using 3D modeling software to design and describe 3D spaces and objects. Beginning with a solid foundation in the principles of architectural drawing and 3D modeling, students will develop their spatial design skills and build software proficiency in parallel through creative projects, readings, and short essays. Students will draw on their personal experiences of the built environment to create new 3D works. Key course concepts will be drawn primarily from the fields of architecture and sculpture, with additional materials from the fields of art & architectural history, photography, industrial design, and graphic design. This course provides an opportunity for upper-level art students interested in design to create a large amount of portfolio-quality work, and final projects are student-driven. Students should have a working knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite before taking this course.
