PROJECT 1 / DESIGN PRINCIPLES
This is the first project I teach in the basic design class. Here students learn about the principles of design, as well as point, line and plane. This is a fun hands on assignment for students who are new to the program to experiment with basic creativity. What happens if this line is closer or farther away? What happens if I turn it upside down? Does it convey a word or emotion? I find students feel a lot more comfortable with their ideas and decisions after this assignment. They feel as though they gain a grip on their talents and abilities.
