Course Description

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

The principles and methods learned in Exploration in Design I serve as the foundation upon which students now learn to express personal, as well as global ideas and concepts. Exercises and experimentation with color logic and theory allow students to understand how color can elicit emotional responses in their work. Working from observation and investigative study of objects and environments, students distinguish key abstractions and selections that can create innovative design solutions. Students formulate initial sketches and conceptual iterations that develop into a final project and support a core practice to help in the success of future work.

Notes
