A digital portfolio is the ideal vehicle to claim one's identity as an artist or designer, and is the easiest way to present a body of work to potential clients, employers, galleries or graduate schools. This course presents how "going digital" allows you to structure and deliver visual information in a concise and accessible manner for maximum impact. Using the popular multimedia software Photoshop, students learn to optimize their images and to manipulate rich media (video, audio, animation) to build a portfolio that can be viewed in a Web browser, or on a portable device. Hand coding techniques (including XHTML, CSS and JavaScript) are introduced and practiced as a means to create an interactive showcase that has become the best way to present a professional identity.

Applies to: AN-E, GR-E, ID-E, IT-E, JM-E, NS-E, PG-E, PM-E, PS-E

Artists and designers understand colors as they apply to canvas, collages, and other physical projects, but you may not realize that color can be associated with personality type. In this workshop, you will take the Color Q personality assessment and discover your own primary and secondary colors, as well as whether you are an introvert or an extrovert. You will also learn the personality color types of the other artists, craftspeople, illustrators, designers and creative types -- and how to interact with them in different situations. You'll participate in a collaborative project in which you will experience how working with other personality color types can influence the execution of an art piece -- whether it's an installation production, a mixed media creation with multiple contributors, a graphics portfolio to present to a potential client, or any other type of artwork that requires multiple contributors. You will also explore how applying the color personality concepts can help you advance your career as an artist and build a more powerful understanding of yourself and your contributions to your community.

This course is held at the Westerly Education Center.
