Digital Art & Design course sequence and descriptions


  • Digital Art & Design 1: This class focuses on the basics of Adobe software and applying the Elements of Art and the Principles of Design to design projects. Students will learn how to use cameras, audio equipment, scanners and printers. Projects will focus on how to build graphics and make slides and short films for websites content. DAD 1 counts as a Visual Art 1 credit for your graduation requirements.

  • Digital Art & Design 2: Prerequisite for this class is DAD 1. This class focuses on Video Production in the fall & Digital Photography in the spring. We apply the same skills and principles as in DAD 1 but projects become more complex. Students will be challenged to learn how the Advertising business is operated and the role the designer plays in that work environment.

  • Digital Art & Design 3: Prerequisite for this class is DAD 1 & 2. This is the 3rd class in the course and can be taken 2 times. Students will earn their certification as an Adobe Certified Associate in Visual Communications using Adobe Photoshop. Students will finish the class with a Web Design project.

  • Digital Art & Design Practicum: If you have taken DAD 1, 2 & 3 and want to return for more study in digital design you are eligible to sign up for this class. This is a Work Based Learning class.
