Credits:

Description:

Interior Design Communications teaches students how drawing media, observational drawing, perspective theory, color and design graphics can be integrated into the designer's process. In addition to exploring contrast, accent, reflection, shade and shadow, the course underscores the importance of freehand sketching as a tool to foster intellectual inquiry and convey design concepts to a wider audience. The course introduces students to manual and digital methods for composing work for conceptual expression, technical drawing presentation and portfolio purposes Design comprises of a series of iterative steps where ideas, of increasing complexity, are conveyed with an increasing variety of visual tools. This course therefore introduces students to the techniques that designers employ in the process of creating interior spaces. Rather than merely illustrative devices, the course reveals how designers use drawings as tools. Like any tool, design communication requires practice and frequent application. The goal therefore, is to introduce a series of techniques that may be exercised in subsequent courses in order to convey ideas in studio and in design presentations.

Description:

This course will refine the basic visual skills developed in Foundation Drawing I (ADF S101). The elements of color and mixed media are introduced to expand technical possibilities, while more intensive work with the clothed and unclothed human figure provides exposure to gesture, structure and complex form. As students begin to develop a more sophisticated and personal approach, issues of expression and interpretation and varied subject matter will be explored, focusing on personal style and expression.

Description:

An understanding of form is critical to the development of the professional artist or designer. This course focuses on the hands-on use of line, plane, and volume in space. The role of scale, proportion, structure, surface, light, and display are addressed as students create objects that activate space and engage the viewer. The course proceeds from work with simple forms and techniques to more challenging and comprehensive problems that employ a variety of media and approaches.
