The Study of Design = What makes something beautiful?
Design is the art of seeing.  (How to identify and create beauty in all things.)
A Designer learns how to "see" by studying composition in all types of medium (drawing, painting, photography, etc.).
A composition (painting, building, garment, product, etc.) is beautiful when it combines the elements of design (form, scale, color, texture, pattern, and light) 
with the principles of design (balance, unity, rhythm, emphasis, contrast and proportion).
Finally, a Designer draws as a tool to convey their ideas, visually.

"Time spent deepening and broadening my visual sensitivity (doing art and being creative) is a spiritual teaching.  
When I resonate with something of beauty, I am one with it."    --- Amanda Hart
