Students will learn the differences between creating fine art and creating digital media for a "client". Fine Artists work for themselves persuing very personal, political and social avenues for self expression. Graphic designers often will be working for clients. Here the final product is very different from a fine art work. It is important for high school students in the beginning of their graphic design and media work to understand the differences between both worlds.
We do cover the fact that MANY digital artists cross over into the realm of fine art when using the tools and techniques of the digital media, however it is important to know the differences.
