This class is geared towards adventurous individuals eager to explore new creative terrain and the art educator who wants to expand their thinking of drawing. The class will consider the criteria for successful experimental work and look at contemporary artists using experimental drawing as their primary artistic practice.

Stories shape our culture and define who we are and motion pictures (film and video) are more prevalent today than ever before. Digital video can be an effective medium for collecting, delivering, and sharing stories. This class will provide a hands-on experience with digital storytelling and video production that will include pre-production, interviewing techniques, voice-over narration, lighting, sound, and editing resulting in a personal short video story. No prior experience with video production is required but it is helpful to be familiar with Mac OS X.
