I feel that you can incorporate the Elements and Principles of Design into
many projects, because the elements and principles are the structure of art
and therefore are a part of all good works.
In my foundation year we do a non-objective design based on the elements and
principles with colored pencil and finders to see and find the principles in
a non-objective design.
WE do a contour, basic forms, and then still life for drawing,
Three color plates with a composition to explain each plate,
( color wheel/chroma, intensity, values),
perspective (1 and 2 point),
stylized design with a crayon resist,
and pen and ink.
These are the concepts to be taught and the rest is up to you.
