Missouri State University-West Plains (MSU-WP) students and area residents alike can learn more about digital photography in Introduction to Digital Photography (ART 210) this spring.
The course will be available as a three-credit-hour option for students enrolled at MSU-WP during the 2023 spring semester and as a non-credit continuing education/personal enrichment class for area residents through MSU-WP’s workforce development office.
Through the course, students will develop an understanding of the principles, methods, techniques and vocabulary of the most widely used digital imaging processes, university officials said. The course will emphasize visual problem solving, they added.
The class will meet from 3 to 4:20 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday throughout the 16-week semester. It will be taught by photographer and long-time educator Robert Kitt of Mtn. View.
