Class Info pdf: Exploring Elements of Design
This class will investigate fundamental principles of design that are common to all forms of art, design, architecture and craft, focusing on primary elements of two and three dimensional design, principles for ordering these elements, and transformation of the elements into a rich composition.
Students make a range of two-dimensional and heavy relief projects and leave with a solid footing in the concepts that will propel their work to the next level. These include systems of ordering and relationships (symmetry and asymmetry, hierarchy, rhythm and repetition, transformation, proportion and scale). Design principles will be explored through presentations and discussions, drawing and painting exercises, sketch models and in kiln formed glass, relying primarily on a black and white palette. The emphasis will be on applying these design elements and principles to your kiln formed glass work. The intent is to understand the essential elements of design, how they can be manipulated, and their role in developing and enriching the artistic content in finished works.
