ARTS 101 - Two-Dimensional Design

3 Credit Hours
Two-Dimensional Design is an introduction to art and design within a two-dimensional context. It is a hands-on class that develops the fundamental design skills to aid the student in any area of emphasis within the Department of Art. This course combines lectures and presentations, demonstrations, discussions, research, videos, and formal class critiques. Grading focuses on process, creativity, formal and technical understanding, and communication. Students learn to identify successful compositional elements and strategies. Projects are seen as exercises and experiments with limited variables and restraints. In-class critiques enable students to strengthen their ideas and become fluent in verbally articulating how they assess a work of art. Projects focus on line, rhythm, shape & rotation, value, and color.
