Students will express, explore and experiment with multiple media tools. This project-based learning requires the student to create video using Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere, animate characters and text with Macromedia MX Flash, work with 3D animation using 3D Studio MAX and author a CD and DVD.

Throughout history art has served to awaken creative processes. Artistic expression has proven to have the ability to communicate human feelings that cannot be expressed by words alone. This course will explore the role that movement, visual art, music and media can play in problem solving and in the resolution of internalized fear, conflicts or blocks. Through a variety of hands-on activities, field trips, readings, films/video and guest speakers, students will discover sources of imagery, sound and movement as tools to awaken their creative problem solving from two perspectives-as creator and viewer. Students interested in human services, media and education will find this course engaging. This course does not require any prerequisite art classes or training.
