Digital Painting
1.00 Credit(s)
Prerequisite: DRPT 2B39 Painting and Digital Imaging or basic skills in Photoshop
The capacity to manipulate and synthesize images from a vast number of sources allows artists increased latitude in generating visual ideas for paintings. Students learn Mac computer basics and use digital cameras and scanners to gather images from a range of sites. Digital experiments using "layers" and other features of Photoshop serve as studies and preliminary drawings that are used as visual resources from which to make paintings. Emphasis is placed on the computer as a tool to expand the painter's vocabulary.
