32:153 Visual Design II [Reid]

Prerequisite: 32:152 or permission of Instructor.

A continuation of Visual Design I, this course focuses on the theoretical and practical study of the organizing principles of design; harmony, balance, rhythm, proportion, dominance, movement and economy. Students will be challenged to create compelling compositions on a two-dimensional plane, demonstrating how the elements of art work in tandem with the organization principles of design. Various art materials and technologies are employed to investigate how form conveys the content of one’s artwork.

Credit cannot be held for both this course and 30:130.
1.5 lecture hours per week, 2.5 studio hours per week, one term.
