VPAS 650 Integrating Design Fundamentals - Projects for the Classroom

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

This course presents a step-by-step approach to understanding what causes one to look at a painting, photograph, or any two-dimensional media and what is needed to maintain visual interest. This method applies aspects of line, shape, value, and color directly to moving the viewer’s eye to and through a composition. With studio projects and hands-on exercises reinforcing concepts, vocabulary and visual organization, participants strengthen their own design thinking skills and develop new methods to convey and explain design to students. In addition, critiques and discussions regarding interpretation are included. Applicable to the fine arts, applied arts, and digital media, this course provides a simple and comprehensive methodology through which artists can create dynamic art.
