THIS BOOK WILL BE ARCHIVED ON JUNE 1ST 2022 AS IT NO LONGER MEETS OUR QUALITY STANDARDS. AFTER THIS DATE, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO FIND THE TEXTBOOK IN THE OER BY DISCIPLINE DIRECTORY (https://opentextbc.ca/oerdiscipline/chapter/design/). This book was written by two artist educators who teach digital art and design studio foundation classes. While teaching classes that take place in software laboratories, we noticed that many of our students expected to learn to use software, but gave little consideration to aesthetics or art and design history. A typical first day question is, "Are we going to learn Photoshop in this class?" This book is a mash-up of the Bauhaus Basic Course and open source software such as Inkscape, Gimp, Firefox, and Processing. We have taken some of the visual principles and exercises from the Bauhaus Basic Course and adapted them into exercises for these applications.
