Digital Techniques - Online
This introductory course in computer skills is a requirement to complete the Foundation curriculum. Students will explore the computer as a tool in support of artist/designer's practice, including software required for the college information system, word processing and creative digital imagery in both pixel and vector based software. Students work with popular software packages, appropriate for design, to gain an understanding of the tools used to create and manipulate digital imagery and to develop a broad understanding of how and why the computer is so prominent in image making today.
Available as an Online Hybrid. Students work both independently and with designated online class times: T 4-6:45 pm, or W 4-6:45 pm.
ONHY = Online Hybrid
Students meet synchronously online (through Zoom). Online hybrid integrates synchronous (live or at the same time – via Zoom) and asynchronous (not at the same time — via the Learning Management System) learning to maximize peer interaction. Students participate in live-time sessions for a limited number of classes per semester for specific purposes, such as discussion, critique, small group work, etc. Between the synchronous opportunities, students complete classwork and assignments online asynchronously.
Students will have access to Adobe Creative Suite through CCS for the duration of this course.
