Honors Graphics Syllabus
This is the syllabus that I use for my Honors Graphics classes.
"In this hands-on course students will consider the primary visual conventions and processes by which Digital Art is created and comments upon social experience. Using Adobe Photoshop CS5, Adobe Flash CS5, or other digital media software students will create artwork as a means to investigate a range of digitally produced artworks that were created by international artists from a variety of countries. Students will create, optimize, and export graphics and animated movies for a web site or CD and to integrate Flash animations with static and animated HTML pages. Students will have the chance to explore the artwork through the Elements of Art and Principles of Design, as was well as within the social context in which each piece was made; students will develop an understanding of the artwork in its political, social, and economic positioning in a global context."
