New Digital Art Class Coming Soon

Emma Alcorn, Writer

Kennedy is adding a new digital art class for the 2022-2023 school year. 

The digital arts class will explore techniques like motion graphics, digital drawing, graphic design and photo manipulation. With motion graphics, you will learn to build movie clips, trailers, commercials, title sequences, etc. Students will use visual effects, animation and other cinematic techniques to bring their creations to life.
