Art 211 provides art students with an introduction to the critical study of new media and digital art works and to the cultural and social issues that influence how audiences perceive, interact with, and are influenced by them. The development of students’ critical thinking through class, activities, discussions, and course projects is given particular emphasis.

The content of Art 211 focuses primarily on the conventions, language, aesthetics, and history employed by artists in the creation of new media/digital art. The course also considers the cultural implications that new media/digital art works and practices have for contemporary society and the culture of the United States.
