Art Foundations ARTLA 20100 is a team-taught course, preparing students for all courses in all concentrations in the Studio Art major.

Together with ARTLA 20200 in a two-semester Foundation Year, the course provides students with a foundational, cross-disciplinary knowledge base and familiarizes them with a variety of different media, concepts and methodologies in preparation for 200-level and advanced studio courses.

In addition to studio assignments, reading and writing on art will be an integral component of the course in both semesters.

The following list of fundamental concepts will serve as a foundation for all class projects and as terms they will be important to our class discussions:

Process, Form, Composition, Color/Light, Matter/Material, Space/Scale, Time, Content, Context, Site-specificity, and Audience.
