The courses in our foundations program prepare the student for study in their major program and involve in-depth assignments stressing composition and form, idea development, design process, problem-solving and color dynamics, while strengthening skills and control. Learn about the essential history and theories of design while creating projects based on sequencing, color/texture, type, and more.
All freshman students begin with a common foundation sequence of courses in two-dimensional design, three-dimensional design, and drawing. The remaining foundation courses in a given major select from courses in color, art history, design history, painting, computer graphics, ceramics, fibers, metals\jewelry or wood\furniture.
