In Visual Communication Studio 2 students continue to advance the concepts begun in the first-year experience and heightened in Visual Communication 1. The emphasis moves to a more disciplinary Fashion focus on how meaning is constructed and communicated through visual media. Students continue to use traditional drawing and digital imaging methods to explore the conceptual, aesthetic and formal qualities that inform how ideas and impressions are expressed on a two-dimensional plane and beyond that. Students explore visual organization and representational forms and engagement through observational drawing, photography, digital image creation, time-based explorations, and the integration of a variety of media. Digital imaging tools continue to include raster and vector software applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Acrobat Pro to explore 2D and time-based presentations. Analog drawing tools continue to include wet and dry media and various substrates.
