    Eileen Cowin is an artist who sees living as a means to break boundaries, and psychology as a way to confront us with strange attitudes or to implicate us in seemingly self-imposed spatial confinements. –Art Papers April 2007 by Eve Wood

About Foundation Courses

Students learn the making and thinking skills they need to become inventive, informed artists and designers. A personal vision emerges from the integration of visual, intuitive, and rational thinking. Underlying this synthesis is the belief that meaningful artistic investigation combines creativity with problem solving and defining.
 

 

1st TermThe core curriculum includes Life Drawing I, Drawing and Building Form, and Principles of Design. Students take these three studio courses along with Liberal Arts and Sciences as a part of a section, where peer collaboration promotes creative investigation, construction of meaning, and appropriate risk-taking.

2nd Term: All students take Connections Through Color and Design which is a Creative Action course, and two Liberal Arts & Sciences courses. In addition, students choose between Drawing Studio and Form and Space and between Life Drawing II and Creative Practices and Responses. Creative Practices and Responses is a unique studio course that focuses on the study and practice of creative thinking that bridges art and design disciplines. Second-term students also select an Elective that introduces the majors.
