Adobe Suite & Arts Track

Introduction

Duke Students get free access to all Adobe Creative Cloud products (faculty and staff at a discount), but not all of them get a chance to use those products. With this track, we hope to offer an easy way to either get started using some of those pieces of software, or simply find the motivation to learn. There is so much you can do with Adobe: from touching up photos, to digital painting, to creating graphics and prototypes, to video editing and animation, you name it, they have it! Regardless of whether you are considering attending one of our workshops because you need it for one of your classes, or job, or simply for personal enrichment, we have you covered!
This track, offered in collaboration with DukeCreate, concentrates on the area where art and tech meets (or have the potential to meet). Whether you are a creative, interested in leveraging technology to produce your art or design, or a programmer, interested in learning more about how art and design influence the way people interact with your coding projects, you are bound to find something worthwhile here.
