DESCRIPTION
The elements of design are line, shape, interval, balance, relative scale, pattern and the development of visual space. Based on a course that David Hornung developed at the Rhode Island School of Design, this is an enriched version of the classic two-dimensional design curriculum that has been been a foundational study for artists and designers since its introduction at the Bauhaus in the 1920’s. It offers the adult artist/practitioner an opportunity to take time out from the usual studio production and concentrate on the principles of design with a view to fortifying their understanding and reinvigorating their work.

• In Elements of Design and Composition: Part I, students will make numerous small studies in black, white and gray under the guidance of the instructor. Classroom work will be augmented by slide presentations and discussion.

• In Elements of Design and Composition: Part II, the design principles introduced in Elements of Design and Composition I will be explored in greater depth and in color. Specific exercises will be assigned but, over the course of the week, they will gradually be replaced by self-directed studies that will help students bring the workshop experience into line with their own sensibility. As in the preceding week, classroom work will be augmented by slide presentations and discussion.

These workshops are recommended for anyone with studio experience.

For the fullest benefit, these two courses should be taken in tandem.
