2-D Design / Color Fundamentals

Studio, 3 Credit Hours

This course is an introduction to the manipulation of the 2-D elements (i.e. line, shape, form, space, color, value, and texture) and principles (i.e. unity, variety, balance, emphasis, rhythm, proportion, and economy), with an introduction to color theory. Processes that lead to distinct, two-dimensional graphic forms will be linked to content based projects. The written and spoken use of the language of design and color will be developed though formal analysis.
