Description

A continuation of Digital Design Techniques I, this course continues with a more in-depth exploration of Adobe software by focusing on more detailed and challenging design projects. Starting with producing animated graphics in Photoshop, and then comparing that workflow and output to video production in Premiere, the need for separation of software tasks becomes apparent. Drawing precise graphics in Illustrator rounds out the Adobe workflow as students then organize their projects into a dynamic JavaScript-based website. Ultimately this course serves as a powerful introduction to common but important tasks in the digital design field for freelancers and members of art production teams alike.

Description

Color is one of the most powerful, and complex, tools at the artist's disposal. Bridging the divide between color theory and color practice, this course distills the essentials of color mechanics into workable studies and projects. Students explore color through creative digital exercises using collage and paint to understand color and how to use it effectively. Tutorials and visual presentations explain the role of light, the psychological impact of color, and how such factors as hue, value and intensity affect design. Additional presentations address the historical background of the use of color. Through the process of experiencing the interface of color theory and color application, guidelines toward developing a personal palette are given. Mastery of color is essential in the work of artists, illustrators, craftspeople and designers, making this course an ideal starting point.

Notes:
- This class will be taught through our online course management platform (CE Link) and video conferencing platform (Zoom).
- Course content is delivered through video presentations, online tutorials and individual presentations of work.
- Students access learning at their own pace and according to their individual schedules with supplemental critiques by the instructor.
- Please visit our Registration FAQ for additional information and resources.
- Students can expect to purchase additional supplies for this course. We try to keep this cost under $100, but for specialized courses (jewelry, wood, metals), this may be higher.
