Digital Arts

The Digital Arts course is an intensive introduction to Adobe Photoshop, in which students learn a wide range of imaging techniques. Students start with a basic understanding of layers by putting themselves into a photo multiple times, and then we begin to dig deeper and deeper into the multitude of uses the program can facilitate.

During the semester students will complete many projects, such as: a narrative scale project, making a house out of an everyday object, arranging photo collages, using multiple different image types (photographs, scanned materials, text, and digitally created layers) to create a digital collage, and a self-defined final project.

Throughout this course students are given the option to either create several simple images or fewer more complicated images for each project, allowing students to take on greater challenges if they are interested in doing so.
