In this 6 session class, we will meet online Monday and Wednesday afternoons to discuss the design exercises and share via Zoom our creative responses to them. Each class will have a slide show of a different historical design movement and explore design through thought provoking exercises.
Design elements and principles are the basic visual toolbox of every Craft discipline. The elements form the basic vocabulary of visual design, while the principles constitute the broader structural aspects of composition. This class is the beginning of a journey to understanding how design principles and elements shape our world.
