Photographic Arts Education

University Level Art Curriculum

Elements of Photography

Students will learn the importance of composition and how it can convey a particular emotion.  Students will gain experience in choosing subject matter and how to develop storytelling through pictures.

Digital Photo Editing

Using photo editing software Affinity Photo, students will learn how to clean up photographs, combine photographs, apply filters and effects, and to create new images from a single photograph.

Elements of Graphic Design

Students will learn the elements of effective graphic design such as repetition, contrast, hierarchy, and balance versus tension.  Students who also participate in the Entrepreneurial course will use this knowledge of graphic design for logo creation and brand development. 

Final Project

Students will work individually and as a group to work towards their final project which will culminate in a published book of photography in which 100% of profits will be divided equally among each participant.
