VALDOSTA – The annual Foundations Exhibition becomes another tradition for the Art & Design exhibition season at Valdosta State University.

“The Foundations exhibit features exemplary student artwork created as part of the Foundations Zone classes,” according to a statement from VSU Art. âThis exhibition presents first-year students the honor of departmental recognition within the Art & Design department.
“Additionally, the exhibit provides students, faculty, and guests with a way to understand the objectives of each course and the learning outcomes for each exposed task.”
The exhibited work is taken from the works of the old art classes of VSU: drawing I (ART 1010), drawing II (ART 1011), 2D design (ART 1020), 3D design (ART 1030), computers in art ( ART 2030).

“The Foundations program encourages understanding and application of the basics of design, creative and analytical thinking, and problem solving,” the statement said. “The core courses, which all Art & Design majors take in their first two years, are essential for pursuing a visual arts program.”
