Fall 2016
Section: 01  

Today even the most technically inept of us live and work with digital technology first in our minds. This course explores critical topics in art-making today by engaging head-on the role of digital technology in studio art. From Adobe Creative Suite to 3D printers and the Web, artists rely on a rich portfolio of digital tools to communicate ideas and to amplify and expedite their work. More than a set of skills, students in this course will learn problem-solving strategies that will expand their formal and conceptual vocabularies while helping them to critically engage the opportunities and challenges of art in the 21st century. Exploring an exciting literature and history, students will also engage in the recent history of digital art.
