The faculty of the Department of Art + Design believe that Foundations should foster creativity, self-awareness, critical thinking, and core competencies. We have designed an immersive program that gives students rigorous, intensive, and challenging training in the principles of visual art expression. Foundations builds a community of student artists, designers, and scholars who enthusiastically embrace the power of art and design to shape our worlds.
