FND231 Design Studio I-A
[2–2, 3 cr.]
This studio emphasizes visual perception through an initiation into the different modes of two-dimensional representation and formal analysis of the basic elements of visual language, such as point, line, shape and figure/ground structure, color, and the effects of light on forms. Exercises in this studio are intended to sharpen the student’s perception of shapes and forms, and to train the eye and the hand in the process of interpretation and representation of two dimensional visuals. Supplemented by the analysis of major artworks, this studio introduces a variety of techniques, exploring their possibilities and application.
