Birth of the Modern

Explores the key issues, problems, and events in art, history, music, literature, science, and design associated with and resulting from the social and cultural changes that occurred in the modern world.

Drawing and Building Form

drawing and building form

FNDT160   3 credits
Students study form in both two-dimensional rendering and three-dimensional building through drawing and building objects.  Skills of relational measurement, compositional organization, and the placement of form in space inform both drawing and form-building activities.  Drawing techniques such as perspective and isometric projection facilitate successful form generation.

 

 

Life Drawing II

life drawing

FNDT182     3 credits
Structural drawing and perceptual skills are expanded through study of the figure’s relation to environment, life-scale, movement, and draping.  Students discover individual sensibilities of mark-making and aspects of personal vision through a variety of traditional and experimental drawing media and techniques. Prerequisite:  FNDT 180 Life Drawing I.

Form and Space

form and space

FNDT161  2 credits
Students employ acquired skills transferred from Drawing and Building Form to explore and exploit materials as well as to discover unique processes in creating novel form.  The study of three-dimensional design expands to encompass meaning construction, composition and research as students engage the more complex issues of form and space.  Prerequisite:  FNDT 160 Drawing and Building Form.
