    Objective for Digital Graphics:
    Students will be able to effectively produce digital illustrations and/or digital media that may be used and represented in real world situations! We encourage real world learning and deadline driven scenarios.  

    Students become proficient in, and refine, their use of concepts, terminology, techniques, and applications of digital imaging to create original quality works of Art. Students produce digital images through combined use of computers, graphic software, drawing, graphic tablets, printers, new media, and emerging technologies. Students' increasingly independent approach to their work promotes risk-taking in the completion of conceptually based, self-directed work. This course incorporates hands-on activities, the use of technology, and consumption of software knowledge. 

    Through the critique process, students evaluate and respond to their own work and that of their peers to measure artistic growth.
