What you will learn in the Foundations of Art at Southern Miss.

Foundations, is an intense first-year experience organized to prepare you for a successful transition into their desired area of visual specialization.

The foundations year includes five basic, yet challenging studio courses including drawing, two and three-dimensional design and color theory. As with more advanced studio courses that follow, foundation level courses are oriented toward understanding the creative process, as well as comprehending and developing a personal sense of visual sophistication. Also significant in the foundation year is the need to acquire, and use with confidence, a strong artistic vocabulary relating to the visual arts. A strong beginning makes for a highly qualified and professionally valuable graduate from any of the visual arts/design programs.

Once you have successfully completed requirements of the Foundation program it is time for you to move into any of the preferred areas of specialization mentioned below.
