Visual literacy skills enhance communication, advance learning, and expand thinking. They are essential for effectively navigating today's social and cultural environment. In this course we will explore Western and non-Western art while focusing on how we see, how we learn, and how visual information can be used generally in communication and specifically in education. Our study will be enhanced by weekly art and media workshops which will include work with digital photography, video, iMovie, and presentation software.
