Course Objectives Establishing the foundation to comprehend the common design language for five different disciplines, providing the basis for multidimensional thinking, developing the manual and mental skills to complement the ‘hands on practice’
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Student will be able to achieve the skill of using universal values, basic principles and rules of art and design.
  • Student will be able to determine the attributes of elements in two- and three-dimensional compositions.
  • Student will be able to organize the set of relations in between the elements and to the whole of a composition so to achieve unity.
  • Student will be able to structure the network of relations through controlling the multidimensional variables while solving a design problem.
  • Student will be able to achieve the skill of evaluating the objects, the environment, the art works and the design objects with a critical view.
  • Student will be able to evaluate his/her own products with an objective view throughout his/her self-directed and continuous education.
Course Description This is a course to introduce the basic principles of design that enable the students to establish the network of relations between the elements of a composition in any medium by way of ‘learning by doing’ method.
In the table below, the main topics that are introduced to the students within the context of this course are given weekly. However due to the nature/structure of the course many of these topics that appear in the list sequentially are worked out simultaneously in practice.
