course structure

month 1

This subject examines the impact of technology and technological innovations across various industries. Students will explore a variety of interactive forms, media types, programming languages, and organizational structures and will also learn how these various components can be combined to create professional technology-based projects.

month 2

The 3-D Foundations course familiarizes students with the fundamentals of creating 2-D and 3-D computer graphics. Students will learn the interface and controls of industry-standard software applications as they develop basic animation skills that prepare them for the more advanced courses later in their program.

month 3

The Fundamentals of Art I course introduces students to the language of visual arts. This class includes discussions, peer critiques, mentoring, specialized workshops, and small-group collaboration.

month 4

The Model Creation course teaches computer modeling with polygon surfaces. Students will focus on developing their skills as computer-graphic (CG) artists, leveraging the traditional fine-arts principles of shape and silhouette, scale and proportion, and edge quality and integrating them with strategies to build better CG models.

month 5

The Fundamentals of Art II course builds on the skills and knowledge developed in Fundamentals of Art I and prepares students for subject matter essential to artists in the 3-D arts industry.

month 6

The Project I: 3-D Arts course combines hands-on learning experiences with summative and formative portfolio assessments. In this course, students will apply their artistic skills and technical knowledge to create a replica of hard-surface models based on reference material.

month 7

The Portfolio I: 3-D Arts course allows students to showcase an art asset based on the production knowledge and experience gained in their Project I: 3-D Arts course.
