Digital Art


This course is for students who have an understanding of traditional media and processes. Students use traditional drawing as the foundation to explore and develop ideas, and will then transfer their art to digital formats to create portfolio level finished works. Techniques, processes, and many artistic design principles will be covered through critique, classroom demonstrations, and one-on-one mentoring. Equipment not required.
