The Arts Foundation Program
In the three foundation courses students receive an extensive introduction to the elements, principles, and vocabulary of design through the use of a variety of two and three dimensional media. Color is an integral part of the design process and is introduced as a descriptive and expressive element of art focusing on color perception and application. Students explore and develop all aspects of the creative process including observation, analysis and historical perspective; visual and conceptual problem solving; the expressive potential of media; and the contribution of craftsmanship to content.
