PPD 104: Introduction to Digital Design Applications developed to compliment and expand the skill set of the traditional artist. Applications will introduce students to image creation and processing techniques using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. Emphasis is placed on developing images for use in KSA studio classes. The production of unique designs and patterns to adorn ceramic vessels, fibre and jewelry is a focus of study. Creative workflow, image file types, drawing and painting tools, colour correction and artistic exploration are explored. Additional topics include an introduction to 3D-design options for fibre, jewelry, and clay production.
