This course will develop your understanding of the digital fine art world with a focus on creativity, portfolio building, and experimentation.

Spending time exploring digital art, you will work with digital collage, video effects, photogrammetry (3D scanning), 3D animation, projection mapping and installation using projectors, TVs and lights.

Through the use of digital mediums, you'll learn how to present your own digital artwork to industry standard.

You'll be encouraged to develop a small portfolio of digital art that tells a story and depicts a strong personal expression.

During the course you will:

•    focus on practical projects and the appreciation of art
•    be encouraged to bring in and discuss your favourite creative inspirations
•    learn new digital art techniques
•    look at industry standard design tools and open-source alternatives
•    learn how the installation of the artwork can alter the work and its interpretation
•    learn about the ways assets can be created digitally, from concept to final product.

Having several mini projects to contend with (including building your own mini portfolio), you'll also be expected to work collectively on a group project which might be to create a digital art installation, or a digital collage using a range of outputs.

You'll naturally have different ways of creating art so the challenge of the group project will be to bring all of the pieces together in a coherent style as industry would expect.

What will I gain?

By the end of the course you will leave with a solid understanding of the digital art world so you can continue to develop your skills.

You will also have a visual record of your experiments that will be perfect for your portfolio and will be able to demonstrate your ideas and research skills, feeling confident in discussing and presenting your work.

You'll have gained experience of what it's like to be a design student at university, and an understanding of what admissions tutors are looking for.

Level: Open to all

Entry requirement: You should have an enthusiasm for drawing and painting, whether digital or physical, and an interest in developing your creative and technical skills.

Where you'll learn: You will be based in the School of Art and Design on the City Campus.

You'll find bright studio and workshop spaces to develop your ideas and create exciting work, and Mac / PC suites equipped with industry standard software.

You'll also have access to our library to use outside of your short course; whilst you can't reserve or take away books, you are welcome to use them as a resource for research and referencing.

Here's what previous attendees said:

'This course has enabled me to have a good understanding of several pieces of software and can now use them to confidently create digital art'

'The course was extremely fun and creatively challenging, it has given me key skills for the future' OR
