English 1101, Sec. 5336: Writing Matters

This course is designed to develop your reading, writing, critical thinking, and basic research skills. Together we will read, analyze and discuss a range of prose texts that will serve as a basis for your own written work. Expressing ideas effectively in writing takes practice, so be prepared to write often in class, share your work with classmates, and engage in editing, drafting, and revising exercises. This is not a lecture course! We will use a workshop model. In fairness to the whole class, each class member must therefore do all assignments and be prepared to participate actively in class activities. As per CUNY guidelines, you should expect to spend a minimum of 6 study/preparation hours each week outside of class time. We meet T/F 10:00 – 11:15 in Namm 1004. Image credit: burtonwwod & holmes.

ADV 1100 Graphic Design Principles I

ADV 1100 Graphic Design Principles I

This is an introduction to the study of design for visual communication for advertising, graphic design, game design, web design,photography, illustration. Visual language does not use words, it uses elements as ideas understood by seeing, responding, recognizing and interpreting. Design principles govern the way visual elements are arranged. Color is a core topic of study as well as an element of design; its behaviors and attributes act as a major influence on perception and emotion. This course uses theory and practice to develop working methods and content. Solving problems as a process begins with research and comparisons of visual styles, trends, masterworks, and cultural influences. The development of visual criteria begins with sketching and representing ideas, articulating and presenting concepts, critical thinking as writing and speaking. Presentation, and methods of working are developed as skills and an output of several projects in a portfolio, in hands-on and digital media.
