Using Adobe Photoshop, a scanner and digital cameras, beginning students learn to create images using the computer.  Step by step tutorials guide students’ progress from simple color corrections and digital painting to complex collage projects that offer unlimited possibilities for the creative artist.  Students may also be introduced to Adobe InDesign or Adobe Illustrator programs to compliment work done with Photoshop. Projects will be diverse, sometimes requiring students to shoot or collect photographic images while, at other times, they may use the program as a tool for painting and beginning from scratch.  Some projects will be wholly within the “art world” and might ask, for example, students to express their own thoughts and feelings in a project.  Other projects may be more design-oriented and so deal less with the “personal."
