This intermediate-to-advanced-level major focuses on elevating proficiency to excellence in fine art skills through observation and rendering. Students will develop a unique, dynamic portfolio while expanding on fundamental digital art skills in digital mark-making and working with layers, digital character design, animated expressive and narrative shorts, posters and web graphics, and digital composition. Students will also take one fine art class. Recommended for high school students with introductory experience in digital art.
*Submitting work samples is strongly encouraged but not required. Sharing recent work helps us get to know you, where you are, and how best to help you grow.
