AT 263 - Digital Drawing and Painting
Credit Hours: 3
This course is the digital equivalent of drawing and painting. Through use of computer software, the student will be able to simulate all of the major artistic media used on a two dimensional surface. While this course is not meant to supplant those traditional art forms, it allows the student to experiment and create without having to purchase costly art supplies. Students will use state of the art equipment and draw and paint using pressure sensitive tablets. Some drawing experience is helpful.
