Moving Images Online (Ages 14-18)

This course serves as a foundation for students interested in video production, motion graphics, and animation. Students explore the language and history of moving images and how artists work with and challenge these processes. The course begins with several demos and exercises combined with research and discussion to develop a final project that reflects individual interests. Students may work with traditional processes such as sketchbooking alongside digital applications such as Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere. Virtual visits to the Art Institute of Chicago, access to SAIC's video resources, and discussion of influential time-based artists such as Tony Oursler, Shirin Neshat, Alfred Hitchcock, and Jennifer Steinkamp support the studio experience. No experience is needed for this course.

NOTE: Students in this course will be provided with an Adobe Creative Cloud License for the duration of this course. We recommend that you have a laptop that meets the minimum requirements for Adobe Creative Cloud.

The deadline to register for this course is Sunday, January 24!
