Push up your sleeves and flex your art muscles for Foundations and Drawing. Foundations is a rigorous course that combines the vocabulary of the visual arts with the most essential art-making tools. Students will receive two units of college credit upon successful completion of the course.
Foundations will introduce you to art as a profession, as a form of visual thinking, and as a creative process. Using diverse media and technical processes (drawing, painting, sculpture, and installation), you will explore new and uncharted territories to create artwork. Come prepared to experiment and have fun, exploring the infinite processes available to you in the world of art and design.
