This course introduces artists to Adobe’s Creative Suite, one of the most ubiquitous tools for creative digital work available today. While we will explore key topics in creating and managing digital files, our sessions will emphasize the ways software can be used for project development, prototyping, and experimentation. Most of our time will be spent with pixels in Adobe Photoshop, but sessions on Illustrator and InDesign are offered. The core functions of CS are covered including image editing and manipulation, vector graphics, type, as well as layout and pre-press workflows. Students will apply skills learned to their own creative projects and ideas.
This course will be offered the second seven weeks of term.
