2D Design

Using a variety of two dimensional media and through a variety of creative experiences, the goal of the course is bring the student to a better understanding or increased awareness of visual forms in the making of two-dimensional art. As in all Studio Art courses, this course involves considerable hands-on activity and learning through in class as well as out-of-class weekly assignments. We discuss and consider how the visual elements of line, shape, texture, color, value and space are used to in two-dimensional art- making. The students are encouraged to find creative, personal solutions. Slide lectures, discussions, critiques, museum visits, reading materials, and demonstrations are integral aspects of the class. Through your investigations in composition and materials, the student will be more prepared for advanced work in the visual arts by the end of the term.
