Learn the language of visual thinking. Explore shape, color, space, form, depth, light, line and composition using a variety of materials and methods.

This course is designed to equip the student to more confidently translate their concepts visually. Hands on projects include painting, assemblage, collage and drawing. Materials include found imagery, painting and drawing, photography and digital design. 

We will explore the link between ideas and process and learn the tools needed to connect them. At the end of the course the student will have built a foundation necessary to create visual works with confidence and knowledge.
