Digital Studio [C]
An introduction to the use of digital image-processing technology as an art medium. We will explore the basics of how images are created electronically using lens-based, scanner, and freehand acquisition, using both electronic and non-electronic materials. Individual and group projects will explore the richness of digital image-making. Emphasis will be placed on the fundamentals of effective visual design. In addition to learning image-processing software, scanning, and the use of the digital camera, we will discuss how the computer has changed the nature of image-making. Coursework will include a final portfolio of digital images. No computer experience is necessary.
