Email – [email protected] Course Description This course serves as an introduction to the elements and principles of visual language, color, form/shape, line, space and texture as they relate to basic design issues. The course will include an introduction to communicating ideas through perceptual, symbolic and expressive relationships based on design and color theory. Course Objectives Identify and describe the elements of art and principles of design Utilize the elements of art and principles of design to create and execute designs Use design terminology and vocabulary effectively in written and oral communication Utilize the design process (research, studies/sketches, completed work) as a means of arriving at successful design solutions Course Method Methods of instruction include lectures, videotapes/films, power point presentation, class discussion, research assignments, demonstrations, project assignments, critiques and personal student conferences. Grading and Evaluation Students will be evaluated based on their participation in class discussion and critique, their involvement with each project and their overall development throughout the semester. The nature of this course is to immerse the student in new ways of looking, questioning and responding to the world around them and to explore ways in which to visually communicate their perceptions. Being that this course is about exploration the final outcome is often times not the most valuable component, it is the means in which the student arrives at the final outcome – how much of themselves they have invested in the process that is of greatest value.Each project will be evaluated on 4 criteria, each criteria is worth 5 points with an overall total for each project being 20pts. The final project is worth 100pts.

If you have four absences you will receive a failing grade for the course. An absence is an absence regardless if you call ahead or email. All assignments must be submitted when they are due. Late assignments will be penalized one grade level. Work that is submitted more than one week beyond the due date will not be accepted unless prior arrangements have been made. Assignments may be redone for a better grade any time before the last lecture period.

Research assignments begin with the Form/Gestalt problem and will continue for the remainder of the course. Research Objectives improve the creative and resourceful quality of your projects increase visual vocabulary become aware of contemporary and historical examples of art and design discover new sources of information in non- art fields which can be applied to art and design develop and nurture a curiosity for the unknown learn library research skills Critiques The purpose of class critiques is to learn to analyze artworks. As art professionals, hobbyists, connoisseurs, you need to know how to make artworks, as well as, to be able to communicate why a work is successful and unsuccessful. In class we will try to be objective in our comments. One of the first things to learn is that class critiques are not personal, they serve as a means of improving the quality of your work. We will have in progress critiques, which will allow you to consider making changes to your work prior to the completion of the project. Classroom conduct Appropriate classroom behavior is implicit in the Cedar Crest Honor Code. Such behavior is defined and guided by complete protection for the rights of all students and faculty to a courteous, respectful classroom environment. That environment is free from distractions such as late arrivals, early departures, inappropriate conversations and any other behaviors that might disrupt instruction and/or compromise students’ access to their Cedar Crest College education. Honor Philosophy The Cedar Crest College Honor Philosophy is based upon the principle that, as a self-governing body, students have the ability to create an atmosphere of trust and support. Within this environment, individuals are empowered to make their own decisions, develop personal regard for the system under which they live, and achieve a sense of integrity and judgment that will guide them through life.Materials List Supply List ART 110 Principles of Visual Organization acrylic paint - cadmium red, ultramarine blue, cadmium yellow, mars black, titanium white (optional - green, violet, and orange) containers for mixing paints ( ice cube trays and film canisters work well) paper - 100 lb –Strathmore Bristol – smooth (11” x 14” maximum) paint brushes - acrylic brush with a flat square end is a good brush to have – an assortment of brushes is helpful. scissors metal ruler (cork backed are good) glue - “Tacky glue”, “Uhu” glue stick, Elmer’s Craft Bond exacto knife and blades sketchbook assortment of colored papers (Canson Mi Tientes) tackle box, storage bin for supplies
