Human Forms: Head, Hands, Feet
Course No. BMA 255 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Elizabeth Halasz
This course is open to all majors who are interested in learning how to visually describe the (1) Head: facial proportion/anatomy, form, construction and expression (significance of meaning and context); (2) Hands: proportion/anatomy, gestural qualities & significance of meaning and context, biomechanics of motion; (3) Feet: proportion/anatomy, biomechanics of motion, the relationship to ground and weight emphasis. This Course provides observational drawing skills in: portraiture, hands and feet in a variety of different mediums, perspectives (from orthogonal interpretation to dramatic vantage points and foreshortening.) This course is designed to benefit majors in Drawing, Painting, Illustration, Biomedical Art, Animation, Video, Game Design, and is open as an elective to all majors. Projects include assignments and exercises which incorporate the specific subjects of Heads, Hands, and Feet. The projects involve principles of realism, observational accuracy, proportion/anatomy, composition, creative context of meaning and emotion. Offered fall.
Human Learning and the Brain
Course No. BMA 301 Credits: 3.0
This course focuses on the question, "How does the human brain learn?" Through assigned readings, extensive class discussions, and a major paper, each student will explore personal perspectives on learning. Specific topics include, but are not limited to: the brain's cycle of learning; neocortex structure and function; emotion and limbic brain; synapse dynamics and changes in learning; images in cognition; symbolic brain (language, mathematics, music); memory formation; and creative thought and brain mechanisms. The major paper will be added to each student's SAGES writing portfolio. In addition, near the end of the semester, each student will make an oral presentation on a chosen topic. Cross-registration at CWRU required.
Image, Narrative, and Sequence
The concentration of this course is an intensive study on discussion and research of the aesthetics, techniques and problems of pre-production for digital media visual storytelling, for both linear and non-linear output. We will investigate ways in which to use more than characters to define mood and forward the narrative. We will focus on how elements such as subject/object positioning, background, props, timing, audio, camera angles, lighting, graphic design, composition of frames, and using suitable text enhance the communication of your ideas. We will hold regular presentations and critiques analyzing your composition of all visual and audio elements in progress and discuss methods in which to enhance everything to work together to tell a more complete, fully realized narrative. Emphasizing the importance of interdisciplinary experimentation, students are encouraged to pursue personal and independent expression while giving full attention to researching and developing original concepts. Offered fall and spring.
Instructional Design: Media in Motion
Course No. BMA 403 Credits: 3.0
This course serves as a platform to investigate and discover human and natural science 2D/3D animation and interactivity to educate and instruct the viewer. The student will use concepts in the body, medicine and/or natural science through the digital mediums of interactive 2D/3D and illustration. Within the course, strong conceptual skills are emphasized and developed through professional production techniques and time-based media. The foundation of the narrative process and storytelling within the scope of the body and the natural environment will be explored and critiqued. Students will gain experience of instructional design, educational information design and applied concepts of media to help audiences learn through visual communication.
