ARTS 2370 Digital Art

This course introduces students to the production of vector, raster, and motion graphics. The creation, editing, and distribution of visual information is examined as both a skill and a form of critical, cultural production. Presentations, critiques, class discussions, and reading and writing assignments allow the student to develop a vocabulary and a critical framework for speaking about artistic skills, techniques, and practices. Historical and contemporary cultural literacy is emphasized. Discussions and critiques address the nature of digital image production- and consumption, with topics of special interest including: image inundation, the production of images as visual content, and the distinguishing characteristics of visual knowledge. Prerequisites: ARTS 1310 and ARTS 1320 or permission of the instructor. Fee.
