This term I’ve been taking FAS-320, History of Design. To be honest entering the course I was intimidated, as I never took myself as one who could appreciate art. I know what I like and find aesthetically pleasing, like most people. But understanding art, different movements, appreciating the differences and influences, seemed more for a better artist and creative than myself.
Now, I know I was just scared, as I’ve enjoyed this class and learning about art far more than I realized I ever could. It’s been fantastic!
For our final, we’re working on a paper about a specific movement and creating a poster for an art show based around this movement. I’ve chosen Constructivism, as I find the movement interesting on multiple levels. As part of the design, I’ve been working on some individual elements. Here is the first.
