ART305, Time and Motion: Animation + Video: This studio course explores art forms that have a temporal component, including animation, digital imaging and video.

Students learn to make animations by hand, using traditional stop-motion techniques combined with digital photography.  They also learn to record and edit digital video, learning techniques for lighting and sound.

Contemporary and historical artists are introduced, including animators, filmmakers and video artists. Students are asked to take inspiration from these artists, while ultimately building their own personal voice.
