Please visit the Winter Session website for the full syllabus: http://www.wesleyan.edu/wintersession. This foundations-style course engages core topics in the production and critique of digital and electronic art. Project development, creative problem solving, and experimentation are taught through a series of assignments combining the software and tools most frequently employed in the digital studio. Students will learn to use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator in conjunction with cameras, inkjet printers, scanners, and a laser cutter. While developing a range of procedural skills such as compositing, animation, and projection, students will search for new ways to employ digital tools across the visual arts.
