- Analyze design problems.
- Discuss and study art from different periods and regions to become familiar with how other artists have solved design problems.
- Experiment visually and develop a direction for the design problem.
Practice principles of design.
- Achieve unity in the design.
- Develop a point of emphasis/focal point.

- Use scale, proportion, rhythm, shape, volume and texture in design.
Create illusion of space.
- Use devices (size, overlapping, etc.) to show depth.
