This course is an introductory studio course where students will be introduced to the elements and principles of art and design as they explore an array of media and techniques in 2 and 3 dimensions. We will observe how God ordered the 7 elements and 7 principles of art conveying His completeness in creating the visual world, and how he arranged the properties of these elements and principles in groups of 3, reflecting His Trinitarian nature. Primary emphasis is on developing the student’s observational, perceptual and representational skills. Topics include, but are not limited to, the introduction of basic design elements and principles, color theory, art terminology and interpretative analysis of form and content. We will also learn to analyze art and evaluate it from an aesthetic perspective.
