Uploaded a Course Syllabus
There is a resemblance to introductory photo courses (CPH 1090 and FA 1501) however, this course is part one of the four course foundations sequence intended primarily for BFA majors and serious BA majors in their first year of study. The level differs from and is more intensive than the media specific introductory studio courses and coordinates with CFN 1091, 1092, and 1093.
Course Attribute

Change made to the grading scale as requested by the committee

Course three in a proposed four-course foundations sequence. The mission of the First Year Studio program is to provide an intellectually and artistically rigorous studio-based foundation in the core aspects of art and design relevant to all of the disciplines. The four course sequence seeks to foster in students an enthusiasm for the hard work of making and a grounding in skills that will serve as a basis for their study. Finally, the First Year studios seek to establish connections between students across majors and create a platform for the sharing of ideas and practices across the School.
