Advanced Automotive Design Language 2.1

Course No. IND 452T  Credits: 3.0

In the first semester of Advanced Automotive Design Language course, students will learn how to develop design language based on brand literacy, how to use form languages to communicate functional ideas and how to develop new design language based on observation of trends. Course phases were set to help students build up understanding and skills step-by-step from proportion, to vehicle architecture, to detail refinement and material/color trim. Students will place emphasis on developing automotiverelated form-giving methods and design communication through sketching, rendering, physical modeling and verbal/ visual presentation. Studio time will include formal lectures, demos, one-day assignments, work time and one-on-one instruction. Required of senior Transportation Track students. Offered fall.

Advanced Enamel Process

Course No. MET 352-452  Credits: 3.0
Prerequisite(s) Enamel: Image, Surface, Relief

This course will focus on advanced and experimental processes with enamel. Processes may include but are not limited to: torchfiring, electroforming, grissaille, plique-a-jour, enameling on silver and gold. Advanced students are expected to continue their exploration of the medium, focusing on enamel techniques not covered in the beginning course. Students are encouraged to explore 3-dimensional formats and large-scale applications at the same time as mastering their skills in the processes previously learned. Graduating students are generally working independently on research and production of work for the BFA exhibit. Technical demonstrations will be based on the skill level of the students enrolled each semester. Prerequisites: MET245 Enamel: Image, Surface, Relief.

Advanced Glass Concepts: Casting

Course No. GLS 240-340-440  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Lisa Demagall

This course aims at advancing students' knowledge and techniques in creative and intellectual ways as well as fostering new conceptual schemes. Students will be introduced to such methods as sand casting, Pate-de-verre, cold working and kiln casting in the course of pursuing their sculptural goals. In the meantime, students will also practice applying problem-solving skills to making art. By the end of this course, students will have a thorough knowledge and understanding of general kiln forming and acquire more advanced casting techniques. Ultimately, with this technical basis, the course will inspire students to shape and realize an individual visual voice. Hot glass will be possibly conducted as complement. Open to all students with one semester of glass. Course fee required. Pre-requisite: One semester of Glass.
