SFDN182 Visual Language 3 cr.

From the complexities of art and design, Visual Language will isolate a series of topics for examination, discussion and development. These topics are fundamental to all of the disciplines
within the field of art and design. The topics in this course include: learning about terms and concepts common to all of the visual arts (for example, composition, space content, color);
exploring material, media and presentation skills (traditional and digital technologies included); initiating an historical and contemporary context for art and culture (issues surrounding the
history and the institutionalization of art, and issues in contemporary art making); and, furthering a student’s own sense of direction in the arts. Through prescribed projects, students will
progressively define and articulate their subjective interests, expressive ideas, and visual affinities. [Formely titlled: Visual Language I]
