Art students are fortunate to have a set of guiding principles for design; this course pairs those principles with easy-to-understand exercises that will provide a foundation for deeper exploration. In this course, students practice pattern design as a way to comprehend the primary goal of visual unity and its generative processes of similarity, rhythm and repetition. These concepts are revealed through a project that involves drawing organic forms, using a geometric structure with simple tools. The resulting patterns on paper are made without digital technology, and are evidence of a student's understanding of simplicity vs. complexity, which is vital to understanding design thinking.

This course takes place at the Westerly Education Center.
