Students will learn how to use computer and art software. However, be aware that: THE ART YOU MAKE ON THE COMPUTER WILL REFLECT THE SKILLS AND DESIGN CAPABILITIES YOU HAVE AS AN ARTIST, since it isn't the computer which is making the art but the user. Good art practice and design knowledge are still the foundation of any art. This is an art course that requires creative effort in addition to learning the technology.
Evaluating classroom behavior, computer assignments, reading assignments, quizzes, and final exam will determine grades.
All projects will be assessed with the following criteria and other specific criteria pertaining to that project. These additional criteria will be stressed when talking about the projects.
