Prerequisites: Full Major or Intermediate or Minor status in BFA Studio Art.
This Foundations course, required of all BFA majors in Studio Art, introduces students to basic 2D visual design principles and vocabulary through the use of common digital creation tools. The thoughtful organization of design elements is the matrix from which effective communication emerges. Through projects exploring the illusion of depth, movement, and direction in 2D compositional space, this course exposes students to the methods, techniques, and technical skills involved in the integration of the computer as a valuable tool in the process of creating art, design, and graphic communication.
