Course Description

Foundation Studio I is an introduction to fundamental studio media, skills and techniques. Mixed-media and drawing are utilized to learn how to judge proportion, create volume and depict the illusion of space. These important core skills are addressed through exercises exploring areas such as perspective, proportion, texture, value, form, line and composition. In exploring these areas, individually and in team projects, students expand their visual vocabulary and learn to develop and refine perceptual, conceptual and practical skills that can be applied to the areas of art, design and TV/video production.
