Course Description

This intermediate course builds on color and design application skills in Techniques I, advancing skills and creative approaches with techniques critical to today’s Surface Design artist’s portfolio. With a focus on fabric, students create four projects that involve working with paints and fabric dyes applied in tactile projects, including Screenprinting/Stencil Printing, Shibori, Ice Dyeing, and Marbling. Students create a final project with an in-depth study of one or more of these techniques.

Through lectures, demonstrations, and lab time students develop hands-on knowledge of art and technical applications relevant to an in-house or freelance surface design artist, and achieve portfolio-ready artwork. 

- Surface Design Techniques  I, II, and III run concurrently with student cohorts working on unique course content under the guidance of the instructor.


Specific coursework required for Certificate Students; all other students should have equivalent experience.
