Digital Arts offers a strong foundation in the visual language of Art while developing experience based computer skills. Students work in a variety of digital media production software. Students develop hands on design, 2-D and 3-D animation and printing experiences. Curricula engaged in composition, graphic design, viewpoint, texture, surfaces, modeling and symbolism are used as ways to create powerful and meaningful works of art, graphic design, photography, video, audio and animation. Students are challenged to build on technical skills and to explore personal artistic possibilities.
Sketchbook and daily participation in personal and group projects and critiques are critical core engagements. Curriculum is grounded in hands on, real world, project based experiences serving the ArtQuest and SRHS Community. All students work independently as well as within small groups, practicing the creative problem-solving and collaboration skills needed in today's technologically-driven media culture. Risk-taking, discipline, dedication to excellence and achievement at a high levels are all keys elements in the Digital Arts Specialty.
