The Foundations curriculum is part of required course work in designated Art and Design programs, Photography programs, and Fashion Studies programs. In Spring 2013, students will have the option to take Foundations classes that fall under one of two structures:
Traditional Approach - Students who prefer a more traditional route can opt to take Drawing 1, Fundamentals of 2D Design and Fundamentals of 3D Design without a Making or Module designation. These studio courses focus on materials and methods that fall within established media.
Exciting New Foundations Program – Adventurous students may choose courses that are scheduled to replace existing offerings in Fall 2014. These classes come in two types: Making and Modules; future students will take both.
- Making consists of integrated studios where students work across disciplines: 2D/3D or 2D/Drawing or Drawing/3D. Each studio is the combination of two classes, in which students will explore multiple media with an emphasis on broad problem solving. These classes will be team-taught by two faculty.
- Modules consist of three five-week workshops that impart specific skill sets. Unlike the more conceptual space of Making, the Modules are a concrete way to expand your technical abilities.
Making or Modules classes will satisfy the
requirement of the section registered for either
Drawing, 2D or 3D.
