ARTT 1360 - Color & Design 1

Credit Hours: 3.00


Prerequisites: None

Principles of design as a foundation for all work in art. Creative experimentation in two-dimensional design with line, shape, value, texture, and color in various media. Required for pre-art majors.

Contact Hours: 6
Billable Contact Hours: 6
OUTCOMES AND OBJECTIVES
Outcome 1: Upon completion of this course, students will be able to design projects with basic elements of design.

Objectives:

  1. Design projects using the elements of line, shape and form
