Offered via the Fine Arts Academy at  the University of Minnesota Duluth, the workshop was team taught by Joellyn Rock (Art + Design faculty) and UMD students in the Digital Methods in Art Education course. Fourteen students (ages 10-14) participated in the five week Digital Art Workshop for Youth.


This after school workshop introduced youth to a range of creative techniques
that can be used to tell digital stories.


Participants created original imagery with tools such as digital cameras and photoshop software. Experimental animation materials such as clay, sand, and other stop-motion techniques were also explored.


The media arts elements of space, time, light, motion, color and sound were integrated to generate unique digital stories spun from well-known tales.


Final stories were edited and rendered in imovie, some include soundtracks mixed in garageband software.

Digital Methods in Art Education


Digital Methods in Art Education introduces Art Ed majors to theoretical and practical experiences with emerging visual technologies. Art projects use the computer as a creative tool and incorporate digital media in their process and  delivery format.


This course provides a forum for the creation and testing of digital art instructional resources for children and youth. Participants are required to develop lesson plans and test their skills as volunteer instructors.

Digital Methods assignments integrate contemporary pedagogical theories of visual culture and current standards for media arts literacy in art education.
