This Foundations course, required of all BFA majors in Studio Art, introduces students to the concept of seeing through the use of fundamentals of 2-D design and the camera. Seeing formal and conceptual relationships is one of the foundations of the visual arts. This course introduces camera use and techniques as a way to codify and utilize basic design theories to make effective images. Assignments will explore shape/form, texture, value, unity/variety, perspective, figure/ground, color, and time translated into two-dimensions, while helping students begin to understand the conceptual possibilities of photography.
