Digital Media

Digital Media banner

Digital media engages with many different forms of new media including motion graphics, animation and interactive design through individual projects, discussions, and an exploration of the ideas and work of new media makers. Our courses explore the foundational concepts of motion and interaction and challenge students to find new ways to create digital marks. Students bring their work from other art areas like drawing, printmaking, sculpture and photography into the digital workspace to create websites, apps, title sequences, animations, and virtual reality environments.

  • 16 professional Macintosh work stations
