A&A 210 Focused Realization Studio (3)
Building upon the material introduced in A&A 110: Interdisciplinary Digital Media Studio I as well as other relevant courses, such as ART 211W, students in A&A 210 will create team-based and individual studio work that investigates, from a variety of disciplinary understandings, more advanced issues and problems in the digital arts and design disciplines. This rigorous and focused exploration will result in a portfolio of completed and fully realized studio-based projects. This final portfolio will be made available online by the student, both to reach as broad an audience as possible as well as encourage the growth of a critically focused community of similarly interested practitioners in the digital arts and design disciplines. The primary purpose of the course is to bring together students engaged in a wide range of studio explorations and create a synergistic group dynamic that will inform and advance the work of all participants; hence, personal initiative and strong self-learning skills are a given expectation.
The studio format is the fundamental model for education within the arts and design disciplines in the University. Ways of learning about the arts and design through projects and assignments that incorporate various technologies will be included in the course. This course also will give students knowledge of the digital arts and design disciplines, develop skills of art, design and communication, and foster a capacity for judgment. There will be an emphasis on both product and process necessitating a high level of self-motivation and initiative. Each student will be encouraged to be open to a diverse range of ideas, values and solutions.
