Course Descriptions

ART 298: Exploration of Two-dimensional Design (2 credits, lower division level); September 2003 through September 2007
This course is designed to teach the essential elements and principles of two-dimensional design. The student will discover and explore the limitless possibilities of organizing basic design elements (line, shape, form, space, texture, value, and color) into unified and harmonious compositions as a means of aesthetic exploration.

Writing for College (3 credits, developmental division level - Not applicable toward degree); September 2004 through September 2007
This course is designed to enable the student, upon successful completion, to enter a freshman college composition course and write a five-paragraph essay in concise, lucid, expository form. The student is also introduced to MLA research format that the entering college freshman will use in many courses. Literary works are reviewed in this class to glean ideas for in-class writings.
