Visuality: Form & Content

Open Day - Foundation

Course Description

This course concentrates on the basics of visual language, beginning with the elements and principles common to all fields of art and design. After learning to interpret inherent meaning in form through seemingly universal symbols like shapes, colours, and others, the course moves on to explore “reading images” as narratives in relevance to history, society and popular culture. Students will learn to decipher the constructed stereotypes of power, race, gender and class through exposure to a wide range of visual communication forms like advertisement, film, architecture, textile, and others.
