ART 1202C DESIGN FOUNDATIONS
INSTRUCTOR:  Tracy Midulla Reller

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This is an introduction to basic visual art studio concepts . This course includes fundamentals of art making, the elements of two and three
dimensional forms, modes of representation and visual art theory.  Studio assignments are supplemented by class critique, discussion and
hands-on experimentation with various media. Emphasis is placed on creative expression and examination of visual elements . 
 
COURSE OBJECTIVES:

The objective of this course is to provide students with the skills necessary to succesfully utilize the principles of organization to effect congruity of the elements of art in two-dimensional composition, including experiencing a wide variety of materials and processes.  Upon successful completion of the course, students should be able to utilize the concept of unity as a principle art element, be able to utilize the concept of emphasis/focal point as a principle art element, be able to utilize the concept of balance as a principle art element, be able to utilize the concept of scape as a principle art element, be able to utilize spatial illusions as a principle art element, be able to utilize the illusion of motion and explain its relationship to the concept of time as a principle art element, be able to utilize the concept of rhythm as a principle art element, be able to identify and utilize line as an element of art, be able to identify and utilize texture as an element of art, be able to identify and utilize value as an element of art, be able to identify and utilize color as an element of art.
 

 
ART 1203C THREE-DIMENSIONAL DESIGN


COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course expands upon the students' use of basic visual elements.  Unity, balance, color, etc ., as used in both two and
three dimensional design remain the same but their application to three dimensions changes radically because of the unique effects
created by light and shadow. The student will be subjected to many lectures and projects concerning these effects. The lectures are
intended to cover those elements that occur in every three dimensional discipline. Projects will be assigned individually in order to satisfy
all interests . Students will then be able to develop aesthetic values in all disciplines . 

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

The objective of this course is to provide students with the skills necessary to be able to utilize the principles of organization to effect congruity of the elements of art in three-dimensional composition, including experiencing a wide variety of materials and processes.  Upon successful completion of the course, students should be able to utilize the concept of unity as a principle organization of the art elements in height, width and depth,  be able to utilize the concept of emphasis/focal point as a principle art element, be able to utilize the concept of balance as a principle art element, be able to utilize the concept of scape as a principle art element, be able to utilize spatial illusions as a principle art element, be able to utilize the illusion of motion and explain its relationship to the concept of time as a principle art element, be able to utilize the concept of rhythm as a principle art element, be able to identify and utilize line as an element of art, be able to identify and utilize texture as an element of art, be able to identify and utilize value as an element of art, be able to identify and utilize color as an element of art, be able to manipulate a wide variety of materials and tools appropriate to the additive and subtractive processes, and be able to utilize the principles of organization, movements of art, material, tools and processes to create various types of 3-D forms.
