Design Fundamentals for Artists and Designers
9 in stock
This workshop is for anyone who feels the need for a concentrated course in 2D design fundamentals applicable to painting, illustration, graphic design, and quilt making practice. In this four-day curriculum, students make a series of small studies that examine basic design principles. Assignments focus upon the special character of shape and contour, the development of figure/ground awareness, the use of limited color, composition, and the impact of relative scale. All studies are made in cut paper collage: no painting. Studio work is augmented by slide presentations and discussion. Based on a course I developed at the Rhode Island School of Design, this course unfolds in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere.
