Adobe Photoshop

This course offers a perfect introduction to the world of digital photography. Whether you are an old pro with a film camera and are looking to progress, or would simply like to jump into the digital world, this class is right for you. We will begin this class by creating digital images using digital cameras and film scanners.

Color Theory
This course provides an introduction to color theory with emphasis on its application to the visual arts. Students will learn key terms and the basics of color physics and the physiology of visual perception. We will become familiar with theories of color relationships based on a color sphere incorporating both color and value with primary, secondary, and tertiary colors identified. The course will explore characteristics such as hue, value, and saturation; additive and subtractive color meeting; color interaction; simultaneous contrast; transparency; the relationship between form and color; and the spatial effects of colors. In addition, the distinctions between local and descriptive color versus subjective and expressive color, the psychological effect of colors, and symbolism and cultural associations will be addressed.
