Historical Foundations of Visual Technology Workbook
Students intending to study modern technologies for the creation
of visual works, such as computer graphics or machine-aided drawing,
or anyone interested in establishing a perspective on visual art
and the technologies supporting it, will find this workbook a useful
tool in their learning.
Contained here are ten "units" each providing guidance on a technical
aspect underlying or supporting the creation of visual objects.
Each unit relies on contemporary publicly-accessible internet
sources for focused reading, coupled with a closely-related "hands-on"
homework assignment. Each unit provides a set of study questions
to guide students in identifying and understanding important concepts.
Included are six interesting larger projects and a sample final exam.
Each unit now contains slides, podcasts, and web links! Click to explore!
This workbook is designed to accompany The Story of Art, 16th edition, by E. H. Gombrich
and Colours: Making and Using Dyes and Pigments by Francois Delamare and Bernard Guineau.
