Welcome to DSP

Hello students of DSP. It is very nice to be teaching ART201 again after my nine year absence from the course I initially designed for the Visual Communications program. Since that time, DSP has been added to the foundation skill-sets in which all Art majors are expected to be proficient. We will be covering a ton of information about design (elements and principles), software (the Adobe Creative Cloud suite of software, html and possibly tickling some initial 2D animation) and a range of creative process that will help designers and artists to find and pin down that creative muse.

It will seem overwhelming and daunting, but don’t freak out. We will get over the learning curve and you will soon be producing art and design work using your newly acquired superpowers. Use them only for good. See you in January.
