Studio requirements

Visual Studies courses are taught in a unique dual studio environment that integrates technology, making, and hand drawing skills.

These courses find links between art and architecture that are fundamental to both, for example: measurement, proportion, perception, cadence, depth and compression cues, mark making, line quality, tonal structure, visual completeness, and visual order are taught through drawing, painting, and three-dimensional assembly.

Students are expected to provide three and a half to four hours of design work outside the classroom for every hour of design studio instruction.
