  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Drawing and Composition I

FNDT190   2 credits

Drawing skills are acquired through sequenced instruction and problem-solving with traditional and contemporary media. Study of pictorial representation includes observational skill building, spatial analysis, and pictorial organization, providing a basis for draftsmanship and composition. The course proceeds analytically through line, plane, and volume with emphasis on dynamics of light and the perception of tone.

 

Drawing and Composition II

 FNDT191    2 credits

Observation, analysis, and compositional organization are furthered by the addition of color, problem finding, complexity of idea, and the introduction of Adobe Illustrator as a compositional tool. Historical referencing, modern and contemporary notions of time/space, and exploration of more varied drawing media foster students’ realization of aspects of personal vision.

*Prerequisite: FNDT190 Drawing and Composition
