ESC 414 Special Methods in Art

Students enrolled in this course are required to demonstrate proficiency in computer graphics or take a course in computer imaging. Computer graphics programs can be effective design tools, enabling learners to change and enhance images through a variety of techniques, such as drawing, cutting/pasting, duplicating, shrinking, distorting, magnifying, and collaging. The goal is for students to use technology as a medium for art expression in the school art curriculum. The course also introduces students to the computer as a research tool, enabling them to explore the possibilities offered in computer programs, such as exploration and assessment of Internet sites for art and art education information and research, as well as networking, discussion, and critique through Web boards and e-mail.
