New Students

Foundation Students Working

Foundation offers an integrated platform of skills, information, and experience that will support you in the future, both educationally and professionally. It will provide you with an experiential understanding of the rich relationships among art & design disciplines. You will be working alongside future fashion designers, painters, product designers, animators, photographers, architects, graphic designers, sculptors, toy designers, landscape architects,and illustrators. Foundation mirrors the future; boundaries between the various fields will overlap and sometimes disappear.

When school starts, you will attend studio classes within a “section” or group of students. You will meet together as a section for both semesters of Foundation studio, with the exception of your second-semester Elective course. This section provides increased peer support as well as a more secure setting to work in, and better opportunities for developing connections with others creatively, socially, and professionally.

The Foundation program emphasizes “sequential learning” — the taking of incremental steps in order to accumulate the skills, confidence, and understanding needed to reach a higher goal. This starts with activities and problems that focus attention on individual tasks and issues related to the courses. As the year progresses, the coursework evolves along a pathway that leads from activity that is highly defined by your instructors to activity that is increasingly defined by you. This evolution is what allows you to discover and/or exploit a degree of personal vision. By the end of Foundation year, the potential for your individual growth and success in the art & design fields will be uncovered. You will be truly prepared to move into your major as a sophomore.
