VSAR 130 - Visual Arts Fundamentals

Units: 3
Introduction to the fundamentals of design in the visual arts with a focus on two dimensional design. Students create projects that allow first-hand exploration of basic elements of design, such as line, shape, balance, texture, scale, and proportion. While intended to build basic skills and develop problem solving strategies, this course will also emphasize the way in which the fundamentals of design contribute to the overall content and meaning of visual works. Through slide lectures, readings, and field-trips students will be exposed to historical and contemporary examples of how the principles of design play out in a wide variety of art including film, video, and new media. Fieldtrips outside of class may be required.
