Get support from our faculty as you learn to draw simple forms and progress towards more complex compositions. Basic drawing elements such as line, proportion, perspective, composition, texture, and the study of light and shade are explored with a variety of approaches.

This course, in which each student will produce one video between 30 seconds and two-minutes in length using Abobe After Effects and/or Premiere, will cover pre-production-organizing thoughts and ideas; production-using a camera and/or graphics to create raw content; and post-production-editing the final video.
