Description

Building on skills acquired in "Design, Part A" (0623), this course establishes a broader framework for the application of design elements and principles, building toward more complex and informed work. The design element of value is investigated further, and color and space are introduced. Value is considered in terms of light and dark and ways of creating a sense of space. Color is explored in terms of value, hue and intensity and contextual influence. Spatial concepts of figure/ground, perspective, overlap, placement, projection, value and color are devices to suggest depth and create the illusion of space. A variety of compositional structures such as linear, clustered, radial, central, grid and lattice systems are explored. Upon completing the course, students will have a proficiency in design fundamentals, a new understanding for how these concepts influence a broad range of disciplines and the larger world of design, and fluency in identification of design elements and principles. It is recommended that "Design, Part A" (0623) and "Design, Part B" (0624) be taken sequentially. Note: Successful completion of "Design, Part A" (0623) and "Design, Part B" (0624) satisfies the certificate requirement for "Design" (1815).

Notes:
- This is an asynchronous online course with no live class sessions or set meeting times. The course will include video presentations, detailed tutorials and discussion forums. Assignments will be sequenced so that one leads to the next and will include project deadlines. Students receive individualized support for idea development and critique of work. To keep pace with the course, students should expect to log in daily to CE Link, our online course management platform.

Description

A continuation of Digital Design Techniques, Part A (1466), this course continues with a more in-depth exploration of Adobe software by focusing on more detailed and challenging design projects. Starting with producing animated graphics in Photoshop, and then comparing that workflow and output to video production in Premiere, the need for separation of software tasks becomes apparent. Drawing precise graphics in Illustrator rounds out the Adobe workflow as students then organize their projects into a dynamic JavaScript-based website. Ultimately this course serves as a powerful introduction to common but important tasks in the digital design field for freelancers and members of art production teams alike. Note: Successful completion of "Digital Design Techniques, Part A" (1466) and "Digital Design Techniques, Part B" (1467) satisfies the certificate requirement for "Digital Design Techniques" (3542).

Description

Color is one of the most powerful, and complex, tools at the artist's disposal. Bridging the divide between color theory and color practice, this course distills the essentials of color mechanics into workable studies and projects. Students explore color through creative digital exercises using collage and paint to understand color and how to use it effectively. Tutorials and visual presentations explain the role of light, the psychological impact of color, and how such factors as hue, value and intensity affect design. Additional presentations address the historical background of the use of color. Through the process of experiencing the interface of color theory and color application, guidelines toward developing a personal palette are given. Mastery of color is essential in the work of artists, illustrators, craftspeople and designers, making this course an ideal starting point.

Description

Drawing is an essential means of communicating, and central to every artist’s and designer's practice. This course, in combination with "Drawing I, Part B," is an in-depth introduction to the drawing medium. In Part A of "Drawing I" students begin learning to define shapes and forms with line: investigating weight, direction and speed through gesture, contour and planar analysis. Then moving on to value, using both additive and reductive ways of working, they learn to utilize the power of light and dark to create a sense of texture, volume and space. Measuring and attention to negative space are essential skills used and reinforced throughout the learning process. Transcribing what is seen or imagined into visual form utilizing multiple approaches -- from note taking to rendering to diagramming and sketching -- is explored. The course is structured around demonstrations, guided exercises, and sustained drawing of varied subject matter including still-life, landscape, architecture and the human form. Note: Successful completion of "Drawing I, Part A" and "Drawing I, Part B" satisfies the certificate requirement for "Drawing I."
