Session 1: Line Drivers – Rules-based Drawing with Line Weights
A simple drawing exercise to introduce rules-based and algorithmic thinking. Student will experiment with simple geometric drawings and line weights.
Session 2: Ordering 2D Modules – Geometric Operations
A drawing exercise that introduces ordering systems and basic geometric operations. Graphic compositional principles will also be introduced.
Session 3: Algorithmic Field Drawings
A drawing exercise that introduces a more sophisticated field drawing type. These drawings begin a discussion about repetition, complexity, and larger, emergent effects.
Session 4: Digital Collage Compositions
A drawing exercise that introduces collage and layering. Divergent drawing types can be combined to reinforce graphic composition principles.
