Foundation Year Programs Overview

Foundation Year

The Foundation Year is an exploration of techniques, ideas, and the visual vocabulary of artists and designers. Although the work in each of the major areas of study involves specialized courses, the same basic principles of art apply. The objective of the Foundation Year is to provide the basic principles, giving a solid background of art fundamentals and techniques upon which to build an education as a professional artist or designer. The techniques and conceptual and visual skills that are developed in the Foundation Year will prepare the student for advanced study in their major.
