Design like you give a damn!

This class will investigate fundamental principles of design that are common to all forms of art, design, architecture, and craft. It focuses on the primary elements of two- and three-dimensional design, principles for ordering these elements, and transformation of the elements into a rich composition. These include systems of ordering and relationships (symmetry and asymmetry, hierarchy, rhythm and repetition, transformation, proportion, and scale). Learn to understand these essential visual elements of design, how they can be used, and their role in developing and enriching the artistic concept in finished work.


Design principles will be explored through various drawing and painting media, maquettes and in kilnformed glass, relying primarily on a black and white palette. The emphasis will be on applying these design elements and principles to enrich your kilnformed glass work. Projects will include two-dimensional and three-dimensional projects.
