Every artist and designer needs to know not only how to manipulate the physical materials and spaces they work with, but what choices are available to them.

They must be able to express themselves using traditional tools as well as newer digital tools, and they must know how to critique; how to step back and analyze their work. This is what the CCS Foundation program is all about.

Any major students choose at CCS will grow from the roots they develop through the Foundation program. Focused studies introduce essentials in drawing, design concepts, digital fundamentals, and materials and processes.

In short, it's the basics - the core skills students will build upon as they progress in their college and professional careers.
