Prerequisite(s): ARFD 200. This course is an introduction to cross-disciplinary study and studio practice in both 2D & 3D disciplines. Students will work in teams to explore abstract concepts and engage in critical feedback as a problem-solving tool towards developing skills as visual thinkers. Through the incremental making process, the thematic assignments are designed to foster conceptual and integrative skills from inception through iteration towards development of a personal aesthetic. The goal of course is to demonstrate the ability to integrate concepts, material skills and techniques learned from foundation level courses and apply knowledge into project work. 2 hours lecture, 2 hours studio.
