Studio: 3D is a studio course that focuses on developing the basic visual skills used by artists and designers when working creatively in three dimensions. Conceived as a broad-based, integrative approach to learning as well as making, this foundation studio will sensitize students to the form language, vocabulary, concepts, and principles associated with three-dimensional composition and construction. Students will gain technical skills and knowledge through a series of projects emphasizing the manipulation, organization, and analysis of materials and space, their implications for meaning as well as the context of objects and environments in contemporary culture. A major thrust of the Studio: 3D experience will be to encourage discovery and stress the discipline necessary in achieving artistic growth and excellence. Along with the other first-year courses, Studio: 3D provides a strong foundation for more advanced exploration of three-dimensional media and their integration with other art and design practices.

Course Requirements:

Course fee: $175. The purchase of tools will be necessary.
