ART 111 is an introduction to digital art, both its history and production. Using sketches and found imagery, students will use the Adobe Creative Suite and open source software to produce 2D, 3D and 4D art. Through readings, online learning tools, in-class exercises, discussions and critiques, students learn the conceptual, formal and technical skills needed for digital art production in relationship to the genre's historical context and contemporary practices. By connecting this knowledge to their own research interests, they will produce memorable artworks that critically engage contemporary culture. (Formerly ART 211 - Introduction to Digital Art)
