Course Description

RISD Advanced Program for High School Students course: Exploration in Design

Design by Tina Jian

Effective visual communication in all art forms begins with the fundamentals of good design that defines space, unifies the whole and ignites emotional response. In this course students explore materials to strengthen idea building through investigations in line, shape, value, pattern, texture, space and form. Experimentation with hierarchical scaling, transparency, transition and a variety of approaches allows students to create a personalized collection of studies and completed works. Students employ a range of (wet and dry) media and techniques, primarily in black, white and gray in exercises and assignments that focus on developing key design sensitivities and student interpretations.

This course requires thumbnail sketches and reworking projects through multiple iterations before arriving at final work. Craftsmanship and presentation is emphasized in all stages of work development. Participation in group and individual critique serves as the catalyst to individual growth as an artist.

Notes
