Prerequisite: Instructor consent.

Fall 2021, DANC 390A-01: Special Topics: Digital Storytelling: Harnessing Social Media to Create Art (3). This class is centered at the junction of technology, story and art making. We will explore and develop user-generated content for snap chat, youtube, tik tok, among other platforms, and practice visual storytelling, abstract art making, and communication skills to engage and inform. We will harness the power, the limitations and the challenges of these platforms and use them as devices for art making. This project-based class is fun and creative and does not require any artistic experience, or knowledge of digital media, or audio or video editing. (HA) Comerford, Davies.
