This is a basic design and color theory course, which explores connections between visual design elements and design principles. Students will develop a sensitivity to the nature of graphic relationships and their control within a given framework.

Solutions to problems of an abstract, conceptual, and expressive character, integrated with explorations in color, its characteristics, physical properties and psychological effects will be realized through hands-on experiments and practical graphic applications.

The importance of the creative process, visual thinking, idea development and communication will be stressed, as well as the development of technical craft used in art, design and digital media projects.
