Short answer: No. All digital images created for this site were designed to align with beginning level digital abilities. The point being that full-on, highly-articulated art and design is possible with a modest mastery of whichever creation tools you end up choosing. Traditional media is absolutely fine and frequently delivers very unique results. Sticks, wet sand and a camera, or pencil, paper, a glue stick, scissors, maybe even a printed magazine – along with access to a copier are as acceptable as any rigorous software program as far as this learning environment is concerned. (FYI, the software used in developing artwork for this course was largely Photoshop, supplemented by Illustrator and InDesign. The videos were created in Keynote.)
