CalArts Digital Media Program [i dig design]
This two-semester class is for productive high school students who are willing to form content in their work through risk-taking and experimentation. Regular attendance is preferred so students can complete their projects during weekly class meetings in their own MacLab and studio space. Students become observers and gatherers of their cultural landscape as it relates to self and the natural world. This course stimulates natural curiosity through discovery and artistic inquiry. Students will study and grow edible garden plants, which become the content for creative initiatives. Detailed discussions, field journals and hands-on conceptual projects will be utilized in class. To complete this project, students will form digital content on Macs, smart phones and digital still/video cameras, while using Adobe design software and hand/analog drawing skills.
