ELECTIVES

Any three of the electives below are required for the Residential Interiors Certificate program. All courses are 39 hours in length.

ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING – EXART 3904

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION – EXRI 4683

Architectural drawing is invaluable in developing and communicating design ideas. Experience architecture’s creative aspects and decode its visual language by learning how to think spatially. See spaces in new ways and sketch what you see with accuracy by applying the rules of perspective and the fundamental skills of proportion and scale, space and volume, and materials and textures. Suitable for beginners and experienced artists alike.

Prerequisite: Introduction to Residential Interiors (EXRI 4676) Focus on residential wood frame construction as well as the legal requirements of construction as defined by the Alberta Building Code. Although designed for individuals with little or no construction knowledge, this course is a valuable review for those who already have building experience. We will explore basic blueprint reading, interpretation of structural and architectural drawings, construction techniques and basic estimation. Other topics include an overview of manufacturers and use of structural materials, aging problems, limits on design and construction, and safety for the occupant.

Visualizing space in three dimensions is critical to the success of an interior decorator/designer. Learn SketchUp, a prominent 3D design software that interfaces with its users through a familiar pencil-and-paper paradigm. Find out how to evaluate scale, proportion, colour, and texture. Learn to quickly generate everything from rough concepts to working drawings and construction documents for production. Most successful architectural firms with interior design or decoration departments employ SketchUp software. Note: Students entering this course should have experience working with computers and possess a working knowledge of manual drafting.

DESIGN STUDIO – EXRI 4685

The concepts and strategies that can be used to meet the requirements of the LEED rating system will be identified and students will learn how to determine the LEED rating system that applies to various types of green building projects.

Strongly recommended: Colour Theory and Application (EXRI 4678) Do you have a passion for fabric, colour, texture, and patterns? Unleash your creativity by learning various methods of designing pattern, printing, and dyeing textiles. We will look at traditional methods of textile design such as batik, shibori, and silk painting. You will be guided through the steps in designing textiles from visualization and inspiration to exploring various methods and combining different techniques to transform fiber into expressive artwork.

UNIVERSAL DESIGN – EXRI 3499 Extend your understanding of design by learning the principles and art of universal design or “inclusive design.” You will come to think of design in new ways by becoming aware of the impact universal design has had on the past, present, and future of residential housing design. We will focus on maximizing utility with the ultimate goal of looking at design projects that accommodate people’s needs, regardless of age, ability, or circumstance.

Core Courses

FOUNDATION These four courses are required for all streams of specialization and should be completed first. All foundation courses are 39 hours in length.

ART HISTORY I – EXART 3002

DRAWING II – EXART 3006

Gain an appreciation of the western art history canon from early 14th century art to the modern art of the 20th century. Acquire a working knowledge of art history terminology as you explore various art movements by examining pivotal works and their artists. Please note that coursework includes written assignments.

Strongly recommended: Drawing I or equivalent

DRAWING I – EXART 3005 Drawing is one of the cornerstones of art training and is fundamental for visual arts. Learn the essentials of drawing from observation. Employing pencil, conté, or charcoal on paper, class projects use still-life motifs to introduce you to the basic elements of drawing line, form, tone, and texture. Develop your awareness of seeing and understanding the factors that work in good picture-making and apply them to produce a finished drawing.

Build on your skills from Drawing I and further explore the fundamental elements of line, shape, texture, space, tonal value, and compositional principles and considerations such as figure-ground relationships, rhythm, and scale. Employing dry and wet media on paper, projects will focus on observational drawing from still-life and the human figure. While emphasis will be on representational drawing, achromatic linear, and tonal value studies, the use of colour, abstraction, and collage will be introduced.

VISUAL ART & DESIGN I – EXART 3003 What do all art forms have in common? How do artists use the elements of design to help develop and unify their work and ideas? Explore these questions and others in this introduction to art and design fundamentals. The characteristics of line, shape, texture, colour, and space are emphasized through examples, demonstrations, discussion, and visual problem-solving, as well as studio work with pencil, pen and ink, and acrylics. Enhance your appreciation of art and the process that facilitates it.

Hang on to your coursework If you intend to pursue the Visual Arts Certificate program, remember to keep your coursework so you can include a selection in your Portfolio Review to indicate your progress.

ELECTIVES

ELECTIVES – ALL STREAMS The following elective courses are open to students of all streams. Electives are either 39 or 21 hours in length; certificate students are required to choose two to three electives for a total of 60 instructional hours. Provided that the appropriate prerequisites have been met, electives can be taken at any time during the program.

ABSTRACT PAINTING – EXART 3532 (39 hours)

ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING – EXART 3904 (39 hours)

Make the shift from representational to abstract painting. Gain an understanding of why and how artists create abstract works. Examine how changing technologies in the 19th and 20th centuries have influenced the development of abstract art. Experiment with other artists’ processes and discuss how to use colour, line, and texture to create rhythm and mood in abstract work. Examine how social movements and changing philosophies have influenced abstract art.

Architectural drawing is invaluable in developing and communicating design ideas. Experience architecture’s creative aspects and decode its visual language by learning how to think spatially. See spaces in new ways and sketch what you see with accuracy by applying the rules of perspective and the fundamental skills of proportion and scale, space and volume, and materials and textures. Suitable for beginners and experienced artists alike.

CONTEMPORARY THEMATIC DEVELOPMENT – EXART 3542 (39 hours) Strongly recommended: Drawing II or Painting II or Watercolour II Explore themes, develop research strategies, and gain personal direction in your art production.

DRAWING EN PLEIN AIR – EXART 3530 (21 hours) Carry your skills out of the studio and work on location en plein air. Work at various sites, beginning with pen and ink in sketchbooks to effectively collect imagery on location. This course aims to make drawing outdoors more accessible.

FIGURE PAINTING IN WATERCOLOUR – EXART 3516 (21 hours) Strongly recommended: Life Drawing and Watercolour I Learn to compose and interpret the figure in watercolour. Work from a model and apply various watercolour techniques.

Students who have completed Drawing I and II will be freer to experiment with the possibilities of this course. DRAWING WITH MIXED MEDIA – EXART 3522 (21 hours) ENCAUSTIC PAINTING – EXART 3434 (21 hours) Encaustic painting is an ancient technique commonly used by the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, in which coloured pigments were mixed with molten wax and painted on panels. In this course students will learn how to apply the encaustic technique to contemporary paintings. This medium consists of a mixture of beeswax and resin to which pigments are added to create paint. The waxes can be reworked or removed, added to or abraded. This technique will give the paintings either a great luminosity through the application of a number of transparent layers or a thick, matte texture. This technique will become a springboard in the students’ self-exploration of abstract and/ or representational art. The creativity of this medium is unending.

FIGURE PAINTING I – EXART 3529 (39 hours) Strongly recommended: Drawing II and Painting I Engage in the western tradition of painting the figure, particularly as it relates to the practice of working from the model. We’ll focus on human anatomy, structure, value relationships, and composition. Assignments encourage the exploration of a variety of approaches to figurative painting from historical and contemporary examples.

Strongly recommended: Drawing I This course aims to expand spontaneity in your picturemaking. Pursue drawing with mixed media such as charcoal, graphite, ink, watercolour and acrylics. Experiment with brush, pen and other drawing instruments. You will learn various strategies to work with mixed media and methods to effectively integrate them in your work. Expressive use of media to convey feelings will also be explored.

Through hands-on activities, this course will cultivate your ability to generate creative ideas and develop the skills to execute them.

TECHNIQUES OF THE OLD MASTERS – EXART 3325 (39 hours) Gain practical experience as well as insight into past technical developments from a variety of historical periods. While painting from a model and still life, you will become familiar with the use of underlayers, glazing, scumbling, velatura, dead colour, and grisaille.
