Drawing (Graduate)


DRAW 502 Drawing Methods Studio This accelerated drawing course covers fundamental considerations of drawing as a form of expression. The objective is to enhance students’ awareness of and skill with technique, materials, composition and aesthetics.


DRAW 602 Drawing the Environment This course builds freehand drawing skills to process, record and interpret the natural and built environment. Designed for students with limited exposure to draw- ing, the content includes an emphasis on sighting, per- spective, and composition as a means to understand and record the world around them.


DRAW 704 Observational Drawing Students study form, light, and space through obser- vational drawing. This course expands the students’ drawing experience and creates challenges based on the complexities of the formal aspects of drawing.

Students develop a thorough understanding of traditional and contemporary approaches utilized in the representation of the human figure through obser- vational drawing. Proportional accuracy and pictorial space are analyzed in depth.


DRAW 708 Graduate Drawing This independent studio course approaches drawing as a unique fine art medium, as well as a means for building momentum for works in other media. Students explore drawing both as a process through which ideas may be presented, and as a finished product with renewed relevance in contemporary art. The course encourages students to establish a working method in drawing unique to their respective studio practice.


DRAW 709 Contemporary Approaches to Process and Media in Drawing Utilizing observational drawing, students experiment with contemporary processes and media. Investiga- tions of diverse, non-traditional resources and materi- als lead to processes that can be applied to drawing in a contemporary context. Critiques and discussions focus on media exploration and encourage students to develop new drawing tactics.

Design (Undergraduate)


DSGN 100 Design I: Elements and Organization Students develop an understanding of the organiza- tional methods used in two dimensional work. They utilize the elements and principles of design while working in black-and-white and color media. Problem solving processes and research are integrated into the development, refinement and evaluation of images.


The work of professionals in a variety of art and design fields is analyzed to understand the application of two dimensional design. The importance of presentation and craftsmanship is emphasized.


DSGN 101 Color: Theory and Application This course continues the skills developed in Design I, and develops an understanding of color properties and relationships through formal exercises, research and creative thinking. Students build a vocabulary for analyzing and identifying color and color phenomena. Concepts of color theorists and color use in a variety of fields are examined to understand the application of color theory. Prerequisite(s): DSGN 100.


DSGN 102 Design II: 3-D Form in Space Students work with a variety of media and complete sculptural and architectural projects to learn how to manipulate 3-D forms and space. Creative problem solving skills including research, idea generation, sup- port drawings and maquettes are used to develop con- cepts and design plans. The integration of presentation options and craftsmanship with the concept is empha- sized. The analysis and critique of three-dimensional work develops vocabulary and critical thinking skills. Prerequisite(s): DSGN 100.


DSGN 105 Visual Design Systems Visual design systems that contribute to expression, aesthetic appeal and visual strength, are used in a range of art and design fields such as painting, archi- tecture, product design, textile design, illustration, sequential art, graphic design and film. Students learn how these tools are used and apply the systems to their own work. Prerequisite(s): DSGN 100.


DSGN 115 Creative Thinking Strategies Creative thinking is essential to being a successful professional. This course prepares students to identify problems as opportunities for change and innovation. Research, experimentation, concept development, and analysis, are the vital practices that lead to inno- vation. Students envision and communicate a wide range of new ideas that address specific problems. Students acquire skills and gain confidence in idea gen- eration by working independently and collaboratively. Prerequisite(s): DSGN 102.


DSGN 204 4-D Design This course investigates the shaping and designing of time-based artwork through a variety of media: video, sound and interactive/change-driven multimedia. Stu- dents build on concepts explored in previous design courses by transposing fundamental design principles to the design and organization of material over time. The conceptual development of working in time-based media is achieved through exposure to groundbreaking team-based artworks as well as fundamental introduc- tions to appropriate technologies. Prerequisite(s): CMPA 100 or CMPA 110, DSGN 100, and DSGN 101.


DSGN 210 Advanced Practices in Color and Design The focus of this course is on advancing students’ visual awareness through a design process that includes extensive independent visual research, and produces fully articulated works. Students develop high levels of confidence and overall competency in controlling color in design. Regular exchanges of feedback with other students in the class and frequent in-progress critiques aim to promote students’ profi- ciency in the use of visual language and terminology and the development of a refined color sensibility. Prerequisite(s): DSGN 100, DSGN 101.


DSGN 223 Architectural Fundamentals I A series of carefully sequenced lectures and studio exercises guides the transformation of basic design into elementary architectural design. Emphasis is on the comprehension of space and its delineators as abstract entities and on the theoretical development of design concepts. The exercises progress from dealing with a single space and its adjacencies to sequences of spaces with specific functions. Exercises also involve the design analysis of notable works of architecture. Prerequisite(s): DRAW 115.


DSGN 224 Architectural Fundamentals II Lectures and studio exercises continue the studies begun in Architectural Fundamentals I with the addi- tion of the physical environment as a design factor. With a continuing emphasis on the visual definition of space and on related design concepts, the exercises become increasingly complex in their consideration of form and space transitions and their relationships. Students are expected to continue to develop abili- ties to represent ideas in drawings, models and oral presentations. Prerequisite(s): DSGN 223.


DSGN 225 Architectural Fundamentals III This studio investigates the dynamics of choreo- graphed movement through sequences of archi- tectural space which impact the visual, haptic, and auditory senses. In addition the perceptual dynamics of configuration, light, view, frame, image, motility, posture, surface, and transparency within architectural space at various scales of investigation are explored. Prerequisite(s): DSGN 223.


DSGN 299 Special Topics in Design The topic of this course varies from quarter to quarter. Each course focuses on various issues in design and allows students to pursue individual projects related to the subject of the course. Prerequisite(s): Vary according to topic.


DSGN 355 Directed Exploration in Inspired Design Using the local culture and rich history of art, craft and design specific to a region as a resource, stu- dents explore issues of inspiration as they enrich and inform the design process. This course is intended to take advantage of the unique resources available on an off campus trip. Emphasis is placed on enhancing students’ ability to draw from the environment in meaningful ways, thereby enriching ideation processes and facilitating substance in design. Development and maintenance of a daily travel journal is required. Upon return from traveling, students complete work on pro- posed design projects that reflects the impact of a new culture on their processes and approach. Prerequisite: Minimum junior standing.
