Book Description
Packed with hundreds of examples of classic and contemporary art, FOUNDATIONS OF ART AND DESIGN, 2E delivers a comprehensive guide to basic design that provides the ideal foundation to design principles. Appealing to readers at every ability level, the text's logical and structured organization moves from micro to macro topics, enabling learners to build on ideas and concepts of design and better understand the material. A running glossary defines key terms in the margins of the text, while two Visual Glossaries at the end of the book focus on styles and mediums. In addition, new "Theory and Practice" boxes help readers more deeply analyze artwork, and "Artists on Art" boxes offer insight from professional artists.
