07:081:121 Drawing Fundamentals (4) This introductory course is designed to familiarize the student with the basic principles of drawing. Students are taught to see the three-dimensional world around them and to capture what they are perceiving in two-dimensions. Projects are designed to increase the student's technical and perceptual ability within a variety of drawing-based approaches. The first half of the semester focuses on the use of line to address composition, creating space, perspective, accuracy in "seeing," and mastery of materials such as pencil and charcoal. The second half of the semester focuses on the use of value, gesture, and mark-making to address similar formal and structural components with pen and ink. Critiques and discussions address both the formal and conceptual aspects of drawing such as ideation, subject, meaning, context, intentionality, and alternate readings of the work, among others. Art historical and contemporary art examples will be introduced throughout the course, and it is expected that students make at least one trip to New York City during the semester to explore contemporary galleries and attend three visiting artist lectures. Offered fall and spring.
07:081:122 4D Fundamentals: Time and Space (4) Working with the computer and with everyday technologies including smart phones, the internet, cameras, and audio recording devices, students learn fundamentals of time- and screen-based contemporary art practices.

07:081:228 Visual Thinking B: Color (4) Basic principles of color that address issues related to its physical properties, scientific principles, practical application, cultural implications, and concepts of color "theory."
Offered spring and summer only.
07:081:231 Design I-A: Type and Typography (4)
Introduction to typography, the practice of making verbal language visual. Builds visual awareness of letterforms and their composition in space through studio projects that engage with type as a means for clear communication and visual expression. In addition to studio work, this course demands absorbing technical and historical knowledge in order to develop a visual sensitivity for typographic form.

Typography is the core of graphic design. We are familiar with the use of written language to exchange ideas with other people. The practice of typography is to give this language a visual form, material, and method of distribution. In this course, we will learn the fundamentals of type, such as typefaces, type sizes, leading, kerning, grids, guides, composition, space, color, and motion. For three studio projects, you will be given parameters with which to learn tools, historical and contemporary references, and formal vocabulary of typography. As Robin Kinross states in Modern Typography, "design is understood not as a noun but as a verb: an activity and a process." We will continuously build upon the work of previous weeks in order to develop conceptual ideas, a strong understanding of typographic rules, and playful ways to address constraints. We encourage you to take risks, make mistakes, and be open to the critiques of your instructor, classmates, and visiting critics. This is how we learn. This studio course will also build technical and practical skills towards a fluency in setting and manipulating type within a contemporary digital environment. Students will understand and use fonts and typesetting software to create and analyze typographic prototypes for both print and screen.
Offered fall only.
07:081:232 Design I-B: Form and Meaning (4) Introduction to a visual communication design process. Work with both hand methods and digital technologies to develop original design solutions.
