Course Description

FIT’s The Language of Art and Design is first and foremost a language program for non-native speakers of English focusing primarily on written communication skills by means of covering topics related to art and design. Through small group work, individual work with the instructor, readings, meetings with FIT students, and sessions with guest speakers, students will develop and expand their communication skills, vocabulary, and use of proper syntax. The goal of the course is to give students linguistic competency to talk and write about art and design. Resources such as fashion, art and design websites and social media, as well as various museums’ and galleries’ digital collections are utilized. Assignments (written and oral) are designed to require students to use the language of art and design in an authentic and engaging way
