DA 109: Art Fundamentals introduces students to the fundamental elements of art. Students are encouraged to improve their existing drawing skills and to experiment with new methods of expression. Students work with still life and the human form to explore line, texture, pattern, form, shape value, depth and composition. Human anatomy and proportion are also studied. Images from art history and advertising are analyzed to challenge students to see and create critically. Students are also acquainted with basic tools in Adobe Illustrator. Students will create completed artwork with both traditional media and Illustrator software.
