ARTS 1107 Design I: Foundations (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This foundation course is structured to introduce students to the fundamental issues of design by providing a basis for regarding our environment and organizing what we see into a coherent whole. We will learn how to process our surrounding visual information primarily through the exercise of drawing. In the process of learning a new visual language, we will emphasize discovery of personal attitudes and approaches rather than on the techniques of the finished work. Students will be introduced to the process of design through the exploration of the basic concepts of the elements and principles of design, historical approaches, and skills involved in design.
