This course is an intensive introduction to visual thinking designed for first-year students in the art, graphic design, and interior design majors.

An emphasis will be placed on interdisciplinary learning, collaborative projects, and incorporate historical, cultural, and global points of view.  Department-wide lectures, readings, guest presentations, and field trips will supplement studio practice to engage students in exploring content while introducing them to the department faculty and their professions.
