VSAR 1060: Studio Practice and Ideas/Image

An introduction to the fundamental skills and critical concepts of visual perception and production common to all areas of two-dimensional image making. Basic principles of composition and design, light and pigment-based colour theory, as these apply to painting, photo-based processes, and print production. Their use and application will be explored within the contemporary art context. Class projects may involve interdisciplinarity between these media. Studio assignments are combined with related critical theory, historical practice and current strategies. (Lab fees may apply.)
