Elements of visual literacy are also used to explore issues of symbol and human communication. Process and development are emphasized. This course is suitable for both the art major and non-art major. Lab fee required.
|ART1203C||Design Fundamentals II|
This course involves the formal understanding and manipulation of the basic organizing principles of the three-dimensional world (point, line, plane, mass, volume, density and form). Students learn how to create and construct three-dimensional situations using basic hand tools and inexpensive, readily available materials. Three-dimensional design also involves the relationship of perceptual issues to manipulation of three-dimensional situations. This course is suitable for both the art major and the non-art major. Lab fee required.
While acquiring various hand skills, the student addresses traditional and contemporary problems of representation and composition. Observation, analysis and organization are the basis for draftsmanship. This course includes studies of line, plane, mass, volume, perspective, chiaroscuro, form and density. Additionally, students are introduced to a wide variety of drawing media. This course is suitable for both the art major and the non-art major. Lab fee required.
The student uses skills gained in Drawing I to explore the development of a personal vision with regard to drawing concepts and visual composition. Color is introduced along with a painterly attitude toward depicting observational form. Drawing of the human figure is introduced with an emphasis on gesture, visual analysis and anatomy. Drawing skills are adapted into contemporary artistic concerns including the use of series. Lab fee required.
