DESIGN FOUNDATION

In this required Design Foundation course, students learn the fundamentals of art and design through exploring the elements and principles of design. Through inquiry, analysis, practice, experimentation, and research, students synthesize foundational concepts of visual art and design, which they will build upon as they progress through their academic careers at the High School of Art and Design. In the spring term of Design Foundation, students examine various majors offered, apply their skills to projects corresponding to the major areas, and prepare their portfolios for submission to their selected pathways.
