I noticed leafy buds during my walk this morning. Spring is
high nigh. The air still hasn’t the right feel, but almost there.
AND LOOK, ANOTHER CLASS … I MUST …
This one begins August 25th and goes for 17 weeks, at a 3-4 hours the weekly recommended committment. Imagine the stuff I can come up with in my blog, if I master these three basic concepts! Now, I might have to ditch another class elsewhere, but this one is a keeper.
Introduction to Computational Arts
This multidisciplinary production class serves as an introduction to, and exploration of electronic media in the arts. Lectures will cover concepts and presentations of artists working in various capacities with computers, as well as tutorials on specific software packages.
Learners who successfully complete this course will have learned basic skills in three programs: Processing, Photoshop or Gimp, and Logic or Soundation. Throughout the three primary modules, students will be learn to give critical feedback to their peers about technical and artistic matters through a grounding in the history of technology and the arts. A digital portfolio will showcase your work from this course which culminates in a computational artwork using all three programs.
