Course Description

RISD CE Design course

Design is the discipline underlying all forms of visual expression. This course, in combination with "Design, Part B" (0624), examines design as a deliberate process starting with identifying what design elements are and how to effectively utilize design principles to organize them. The formal elements of design, including line, shape, plane, form, pattern, value, and texture, are introduced. Students work through a variety of challenging exercises learning how and when to apply design principles of figure/ground, contrast, balance (symmetry and asymmetry), unity, repetition, alternation, rhythm, dominance and sequence. Design studies and projects use black, white and values only. Material exploration will include pen and ink, pencil, gouache paint (mixing and handling) and collage. Skills acquired in this course have direct applications to anyone working in art and design, from painters and artists to art directors, illustrators, interior designers and interactive designers. Note: Successful completion of "Design, Part A" (0623) and "Design, Part B" (0624) satisfies the certificate requirement for “Design” (1815).
