Biomedical Art: Advanced Media Concepts
Course No. BMA353 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Thomas Nowacki
This course serves as the first iteration of Advanced Problems in Biomedical Art, and builds on observational and other skills acquired from preceding Biomedical Methods courses. The course focuses on digital illustration and drawing techniques which help to explore editorial, narrative and educational communication problems. The course is also used for non-majors to develop strong skills in digital illustration / drawing techniques (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign) The scope of the course entails developing skills and knowledge necessary for effective visual communication of biomedical concepts and subject matter such as human anatomy, veterinary/zoology subjects, body systems and natural science subject matter. The focus will be on developing advanced visual storytelling skills. Students will learn to take complex information presented by specific biomedical art subject matter and selectively simplify it to solve visual communication problems effectively. Students will work exclusively in digital media will to develop practical competence in the rendering methodologies and learn the conventions of modern production. When appropriate, project-based learning and client relationships will be incorporated into the course for specific assignments and exercises. Students outside the Biomedical Art major will not be required to produce illustrations based on biomedical content, but instead will focus on developing visually illustrated narrative projects, of equal complexity, pertinent to their own areas of interest. Offered fall.
