These classes provide professional-level skills in two-dimensional art and design software. The topics covered encompass both main branches of computer graphics: vector graphics (line art, diagrams, lettering, charts, logos, etc.) and raster graphics (painterly effects and photographic editing).
The skills acquired in these classes are applicable to very broad range of occupations, from videographics to illustration and fine art. Many students in other areas of concentration in the visual arts will in fact benefit from learning to use these tools.
