Basic Design A & B (2 Credits): Using a variety of tools and visual exercises this course will introduce the student to organizing elements and principles of two-dimensional design. Elements such as line, space, texture, value, colour, and spatial illusion will be related to the principles of design (balance, proportion, repetition, contrast, harmony, unity, point of emphasis, and visual movement) to enable the student to employ visual awareness and dynamics in the field of two-dimensional design. Critical evaluation skills will play a key part in individual class discussion and group critiques. An opportunity for portfolio building will be a key component.
