ART 100. 2D Design & Color Foundations.
(2-2-3); I, II.
An introduction to fundamental elements and principles of two-dimensional design as well as artistic and scientific principles of color. The course covers, in a direct way, "why" an artist puts "what" "where." This course addresses design considerations such as: space and depth, scale, emphasis, balance, repetition, variation, symmetry, asymmetry, pattern and other elements of image form. These ideas are considered alongside color by examining how color affects these structures in an image. A variety of media is experimented with including paint, ink, pencil and paper, collage, digital media and others. This course is required for, but not limited to, art majors.
