New Courses and Program Notes



ART 270 Special Topics: Information Design

A. Niemiec, O.P. 

This course examines design principles that direct the presentation of data. Taking inspiration from data displays both historical and modern, students will develop their own visualizations of information, ones that can inform and persuade effectively. 

ART 270 Special Topics: Drawing 3-D Game Characters

J. Janecek

You’ll use three dimensional drawing tools with a graphics stylus and tablet to draw, flatten, smooth, grab, scale, rotate, crease, pinch—virtual game characters into shape. After the detailed shapes of your game characters emerge in virtual space they will enter the Paint Mode for the final effect.
The course will be divided into two parts:
We’ll invent Board Game characters and then move into Video Game ideas—a screen shot full of characters and action.
No drawing experience required—and we’ll meet for a very productive six hours per week.
Questions—please email Prof. Janecek.


ART 470 Special Topics: Old Masters, New Ideas

Applied Music - Registration & Fee

These are private lessons taught by an instructor on a one-to-one basis.  Lessons are given once a week and do not count as a fifth course.  There is an additional charge of $570.00 for lessons each semester.  Students must register with the Music Department during the first week of the semester to receive a lesson schedule and be assigned an instructor.  Students who do not register with the Music Department during the first week of the semester cannot be guaranteed lesson space.  If an instrument is unavailable at the College, the student is responsible for its rental fee.  The Department cannot stow most instruments because of space constraints.

Membership in I Cantori is by audition only.  Students wishing to audition for I Cantori must contact Dr. T. J. Harper during the first week of the semester to schedule an audition appointment.
