College of Art, Media & Design

1.5 credits 45.0 hours

The goal of this course is to provide tools for students to convert their abstract ideas into understandable, visual media for fluent communication. This course provides students with not only the philosophical understanding of how and why visual communication is important in the design process, but also exposes students to modern visualizing tools and techniques in both physical and digital methods. In the course, students will practice visualization skills including quick drawing for individual and group ideation, hand and digital sketching, and two-dimensional and three-dimensional rendering. The course will help students build an advanced skill set that enables them to become fluent visual thinkers and communicators using effective visualization techniques.
