BEAU Foundations Art Showcase
Going to a school with its own art gallery means you can look forward to showing off your artwork. Students did just that recently at the Foundations Art Showcase. Erin Coleman-Cruz, program chair of the visual design program, had this to say about it:
“The Foundations Art Showcase features artwork by students in the foundational art courses which are taken within the first year or so of the visual design program. The focus of the showcase is to show how learning to be an artist requires practice and exploration. We arrive at a strong end result by learning to see things differently and by practicing new techniques and new ways of thinking. The classes presented here are Digital Tools, Basic Drawing, Perspective Drawing, 3D I, 3DIII, and Color Theory.”

Throughout the foundational courses students have the opportunity to create art using a variety of tools. Along with using a pencil and paper in the drawing courses, students learn to use 3D objects to create sculptures and use computer software to create digital art.
