We will be studying digital art as it relates to the elements and principles of art and design. All projects require basic computer literacy. Many of our projects will align with historical and social events. Use new knowledge from other class lectures and research. When you build meaning and substance into your art it will mean more to you and ultimately have more to say to others.
The digital world is continually changing. As new information is shared we all grow. Come prepared to be part of the conversation.
