ARTS-003 Three-Dimensional Design
Three-Dimensional Design, organizing form and space is an introduction to concepts and methods designers use to order tangible form and space in a visually exciting way. Its goal is to develop an appreciation of structures, and an awareness and understanding of the building processes and materials that go into their formation. Assignments address abstract concepts, such as communicating through design elements and principles, and practical issues including craftsmanship, material choices and structural integrity. Projects are completed using lightweight materials: paper, cardboard, sticks, string, wire, etc. The course is taught through hands-on projects, class discussions and lectures. Trips to local museums and galleries augment class work. No prerequisite. Fall and Spring. Students enrolled in Studio courses must devote a minimum of 4 - 6 hours per week outside of class to develop and complete assignments. These times are flexible and adjustable depending on the assignment.
