VIS1100 Elements of Visual Design (FOART)


Semester 1 (EXT)Toowoomba


Units 1.0 (100300) Band 1


Synopsis

This course introduces students to the basic concepts of design that are fundamental to visual composition and inherent in the full range of art disciplines as well as in areas of architecture, fashion, and industrial design applications. While examples will be drawn predominantly from the two dimensional areas of drawing, painting, photography, and printmaking, aspects of form and mass will be shown to facilitate an understanding of three dimensional format through examples taken from architecture, ceramics, fashion, industrial design, sculpture, and textiles. An understanding of the application of the elements and principles of design will be seen to contribute to an aesthetic appreciation of the design and composition of an object, as well as enhance an understanding of both its form and its function.
