It is intended to train students for careers in the fine arts, desktop publishing, and television in particular. Courses include instruction with animation; paint systems; three-dimensional rotation; desktop publishing; computer aided design, drafting, and machining; digitizing; genlock; slidemaking; scanning; and videotape editing. Indicators of success of the program include placement rate of graduates, interns, and students seeking summer employment; program expansion to summer sessions; and purchase of advanced equipment.
