Foundations|UW Department of Art


The Foundations program offers a “core” of basic design courses including Beginning Drawing, Two-Dimensional Design, Three-Dimensional Design and Color Theory.  Students explore basic elements of art (line, shape, value, color, pattern/texture, and time) as well as the organizing design principles (unity/variety, balance, scale/proportion, economy, emphasis, direction/movement, and space) through a variety of materials and visual approaches.  Critiques and discussions of projects allow students to discuss their work aesthetically, conceptually and technically to prepare them for entry-level studio courses in the areas of Ceramics, Drawing, Graphic Design, Painting, Printmaking and Sculpture.
