An introductory art studio class in basic holography which stresses the visual characteristics of the medium through hands-on production of holograms. The class will cover the technical skills involved in making simple reflection and transmission holograms and the inherent visual problems presented by this new imaging medium. It is essentially a lab oriented class with image production being the students' major responsibility.

This course provides non-art majors with the opportunity to practice, as well as study, visual skills. It attempts to give students a broad experience through: (1) exposure to art history, anthropology and art, and the psychology of visual perception presented in slide lectures; (2) technical mastery of a range of media; (3) development of creative and technical skills; and (4) critical assessment of works of art during class discussions and critiques. During the first part of the course students acquire a visual vocabulary by working with the basic elements of design, including line, shape, tone, texture, perspective, balance, and color. Students complete projects dealing with these visual elements. During the final part of the course students apply their new visual skills to longer, more complex projects.
