Digital Art is a half year course that focuses on using technology as media art form. Students will be introduced to Photoshop and other digital methods. The main focus will be on the Elements and Principles of Design, aesthetic awareness, problem solving, and developing observation and technical skills. Students will apply these skills, through authentic assessments, while connecting their Art to artists and art styles. A variety of media will be explored. Craftsmanship and creativity will be encouraged through the student’s individual approach to the media. Emphasis is placed on process, idea development, observation, experimentation and critique. Analysis of historical, cultural and contemporary Art will broaden students’ understanding of the artistic process, fuel ideas, and empower them in seeing and interpreting the world around them.
