This Foundations course, required of all BFA majors in Studio Art, introduces students to the concept of Illusion through principles and elements of design and composition using a variety of basic Painting techniques. Illusions of space and form are created by the skilled application of these principles and techniques. The course focuses on color theory, the application of color, and use of materials. Projects exploring color, space, balance, emphasis, rhythm, and value will lead students though a series of 2D projects that encourage independent decision-making, analysis, and effective use of terminology.
