Intro to Digital Media
30 May 2017

This course provides a foundation in the fundamentals of pictorial design. In a sequence of hands-on exercises and projects you will be introduced to the concept of the picture plane, figure/ground relationships, scale and proportional transformation, patterning, value, color, and methods for conveying time. Using a wide variety of materials and methods, you are encouraged to develop your own design vocabulary and repertoire of practical techniques. In addition to introducing formal design strategies, the course emphasizes content issues and the historical and cultural context in which works of art are produced. Regular slide lectures and critiques are strutted informally to encourage dialogue amongst the class. We focus on experiments and problems in abstract compositions.
Students will give presentations, complete visual exercises and produce creative work.
