ARFD121: Foundations I: Concept, Process and Application (2 hours lecture, 4 hours studio)

Students will be challenged and guided in the development of their critical and conceptualizing skills as they apply to art and design processes. Foundations I is a problem-solving course in which the student investigates the dynamic visual forces involved in composing in a variety of media. Students explore the interrelationships of composition, process, perception, and intent. Through the understanding of concepts, processes, and visual language, students broaden their skills in idea development, research strategies, and technical application. This course advocates and utilizes the model of a learning community to effectively introduce students to ideas, issues, and practices in contemporary art and design. Foundations I further connects creative research and practice to socio-political and cultural ideology, allowing students opportunities for integration of ideas outside the disciplines of art. This will be accomplished through lectures, exercises, student team assignments, discussion, and exploration in and outside of the classroom. This course is required during the first semester for all freshman and undergraduate transfer students majoring in BA Studio and BFA Studio. 3 sh.

ARFD122: Foundations II: 2D Design (2 hours lecture, 4 hours studio)

Foundations II introduces students to the principles of 2-dimensional design in a variety of media. Major principles covered include composition, line, shape, volume, movement, value, rhythm, repetition, variation, scale, size, perspective, proportion, texture, balance, unity, harmony, and contrast. The course content consists of a variety of projects focusing on critical, theory-based problem solving, together with lectures and demonstrations. 3 sh.

ARFD123: Foundations III: Visual Organization - 3D Design (2 hours lecture, 4 hours studio)

An introduction to the 3rd dimension of the world that we inhabit ("made" things, natural forms, and the occupation of space). Three-dimensional sensibility is progressively developed when basic components are manipulated by the effective use of direction, balance, axis, orientation, and relationship; in other words, organization (composition). Assignments in light, shape, shadow, depth, form, and movement are examined in a natural progression from 2D knowledge to 3D. Activities include lectures, conceptualization, observation, creation, discussion, and critical analysis for each project. The aesthetic consideration of materials and tools in this context add to the expressive output of three-dimensional study. The process may begin with concept, material or observation; it continues by way of lecture, demonstration, critical analysis and class discussion until each project is crafted to completion. 3 sh.

Prerequisites: ARFD 121.

ARFD124: Foundations IV: Figure Drawing (2 hours lecture, 4 hours studio)

An introduction to drawing the human figure. Students in this course will spend the majority of their time drawing from live models in a studio setting. Most classes will follow the traditional figure drawing format of beginning with quick gesture drawings, with poses gradually increasing in length of time, and ending with a single sustained pose of an hour or more. The students will be introduced to a wide range of ideas, concepts, strategems, and materials related to the drawing of the human figure. Ideas and drawing approaches will be illustrated by looking at the visual examples of artworks by both past and present figurative artists. A brief historical overview of various visions of the human image will be presented, as will an introduction of human anatomy for artists. Concurrent with ideas about proportion, foreshortening, scale, and anatomical construct, ideas about line quality, chiaroscuro, and the figure in differing spatial constructs will be explored. Although weekly thematic ideas will be presented, most classes will include an interweaving and repetition of a wide range of concepts. 3 sh.

Prerequisites: ARFD 121.

ARFD125: Foundations V: Color, Light and Time (2 hours lecture, 4 hours studio)

Color functions in many ways - as a visual phenomenon of light, as a perceptual occurrence, as a pigment with specific mixing properties, and as an element with powerful expressive and symbolic potential. It is important that artists and designers understand the principles and properties of color for use in their work in any medium. This course introduces students to the history, theory, and interdisciplinary use of color and color systems via lectures, demonstrations, and exercises. 3 sh.

Prerequisites: ARFD 121.

ARGD200: Graphic Design, Beginning I (6 hours studio)

Introduction to graphic design principles. This course is involved in taking basic design information and translating it into a graphic design context, with main emphasis on communicating original ideas in a creative manner. Projects deal with graphic design principles, i.e., visual communication of information, composition, color, type, illustration, materials and methods of graphic design. Introduction to critique and presentation, along with the principle of the designer/client relationship. 3 sh.

Prerequisites: ARFD 122.

ARGD210: Graphic Design, Beginning II (2 hours lecture, 3.75 hours studio)

Focuses on creative design development within various graphic design specializations: print (flat and folding); packaging; product & environmental graphics; and graphics for interactive media. Students explore typeface choice and proper use of typography, as well as professional methods of comping and presentation by hand and with industry standard software: this begins development of a student's graphic design portfolio. 3 sh.

Prerequisites: ARGD 200. For Graphic Design (GRDN) majors only.
