Overview

Students studying Imaging Arts learn to create dynamic images and have the opportunity to work in analog and digital environments. Students are encouraged and mentored to learn the foundations of the medium while refining their personal visual language as an expressive tool. Imaging Arts focuses on the combination of analog and digital strategies enabling students to gain experience with film, digital and alternative photographic processes. Students explore a variety of image-making processes through coursework in black and white, color, large format, studio lighting, non-silver, digital photography, and video. These experiences prepare students for a career in both commercial and fine art applications.

Professor of Art Brooke White heads the area.


Organization

The Clicks, a photography club

The Clicks is a student run organization formed by Imaging Arts majors and led by Adjunct Instructor Rebekah Flake. Students participate in workshops, lectures, museum trips and group photo shoots. Our goal is to promote and support the photographic community within the Imaging Arts program.

Beginning in the Spring 2020 a laptop and digital camera (with manual controls) will be required for all Imaging Arts classes above Art 381. Both are used in the creation of photographic imagery, the production of video and hybrid forms of photographic practices today.

A laptop is highly recommended for all Imaging Arts classes above Art 381. A  laptop is used in the creation of photographic imagery, the production of video and hybrid forms of photographic practices today.

**It should be noted that Art 381 requires a 35mm SLR camera with a 50 mm lens and Art 383 requires a digital camera with manual controls.

We recommend a Mac laptop but there are many options available today that will satisfy the needs of the Imaging Arts curriculum.
