ARTT 1380 - 3D Design

Credit Hours: 3.00


Prerequisites: None

(replaces but does not equate to ARTT 1370)

An introduction to the elements and principles of three-dimensional design. Creative experimentation in three-dimensional design with mass, volume, line, time, space, texture, and color in various approaches explored in paper, wood, plastic, metal, etc.

NOTE: ARTT 1360 should be taken prior to, or in the same semester as ARTT 1380.

Location: Center Campus

Contact Hours: 6
Billable Contact Hours: 6
