Art and Design Science

The Art and Design Science program is designed to provide future constructive artists, teachers and researchers with a high level of constructive skills through specialized research on important and fundamental issues that are common to different art media. In addition to the“ shapes”,“ colors” and“ texture” of modern media, it is also extremely important to expand research to include the characteristics and media possibilities of“ movement” and“ light.” Further, there are many types of research on important themes common to the constructive arts, including the systematization of brainstorming methods and visual language; research related to the feeling, perception, structure, etc., of materials; mechanical approaches to patterns and shapes, and emotional approaches to color. 

Art and Design Science instruction focuses on the theory of construction through lectures and experiments involving construction of two- and three-dimensions, colors, light, and movement.
