This course is devoted to hands-on fabrications of projects related to art, technology, design, and engineering using our state-of-the-art equipment: 3D Printer (plastic), laser cutter (cardboard and wood), and CNC plasma cutter (steel). Students explore their ideas using the tools and techniques found in a digital fabrication lab while earning a full semester elective credit in art.DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY
In this all-digital course, students learn the fundamentals of photography in composition, camera function, and art history. Using the campus grounds and architecture as inspiration, several small portfolios of themed images will serve as the foundation to understanding the difference between mere snapshots and composed photography. This course fulfills one required arts elective.
INTRODUCTION TO ARCHITECTURE
What distinguishes a good building from being great? Students will work with an award-winning architect using the Hunting Valley campus as a laboratory to explore the making of great spaces. This course focuses on design fundamentals, the generation of ideas, and discussion on how spaces affect us and how we affect spaces. From small design ideas such as furniture to grand designs such as city planning, this course challenges the students to look critically at the built environment for both performance and aesthetics as they design their own solutions and present their proposals. Fulfills a full semester elective credit in art.
