ARS 209 - Digital Foundations

1 course unit
This course will provide students with a practical and conceptual foundation in the formal elements that underlie all visual art, within a fully digital imaging environment.  We will apply the principles of visual organization as they relate to both decorative and illusionary space.  Utilizing the latest Adobe CS software, students will become conversant with the elements of shape, line, value, texture, and color.  They will make art in response to assigned exercises, as well as in response to their own imaginative resources.  Media may include digital electronic display of still or moving images, digital print media, and hybrid forms.  Students will be introduced to the history of foundation design, will build a working vocabulary of art terms, and participate in class critiques. Four contact hours per week.
Prerequisite(s): Any 100 level studio course.
