Foundation Design Studio II

Foundation Design Studio II builds directly on the work and lessons begun in the fall. Projects continue to be focused on disciplined observation, iterative process, and critical graphic and verbal interrogation of ideas. The subjects of composition and order move from two-dimensional considerations of shape, line, surface, and value, to three-dimensional investigations of form, space, light, motion/time, and color. Students are introduced to a range of modeling methods and materials, including textiles, paper, cardboard, wood, metal, and plaster casting.
