Intensive Introductory Workshop (suitable for beginner to advanced students)
Taught by: Ed Chan

In this hands-on course, you learn the basic principles of interior design and begin to draw and draft your ideas, blending creative expression with practical application. Understand the aesthetic, functional, and psychological considerations that give interiors their character and study key design principles, including space planning and design composition, furniture layouts and planning, the application of color, and the use of materials. Explore the elements of design (color, texture, materials, pattern, and light) as applied to interiors, develop basic drafting skills, and learn how designers take projects from concept to completion. You develop a foundation for understanding the design process, and for cultivating your ability to think through design problems. The second-half of this course deals with our relation to space, form, and environment. Emphasis is on how human factors influence design, applying design principles to projects of varying scale, materials, and structures. Continue to develop and expand your ability to tackle the challenges of more complex design issues through an analysis and consideration of professional design problems. Emphasis is placed on spatial problem-solving. Furniture systems and types of storage are researched. Application of color, materials, and finishes are studied and employed in corporate and residential projects. Slide-illustrated lectures and discussions help you develop an awareness of the basic principles of design and aesthetics by studying the work of past and present designers and architects. Explore and develop your creativity while learning the principles of balance, harmony, rhythm, emphasis, contrast, and proportion and how these principles interact with the elements of scale, form, color, and texture.
