Computer Art

Computer Art is about using technology to create. As technology evolves at an ever-quickening pace, the need to stay looped into the latest advances in software and hardware technology is important for so many careers, including graphic and web design, architecture, interior and industrial design, animation and motion graphics—even fine arts.


We offer courses in Adobe programs, programming languages, web design and development and more, for beginners and advanced users.

We have a vast array of courses. For those interested in programming languages—a great skill to have in your arsenal—we have courses in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and more.

Perhaps you want to strategize on how to market your brand by mastering social media, learning how to build a blog or a website, or creating an app—we have courses on each of these.

We offer beginning, intermediate and advanced courses in Adobe software—Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Muse, After Effects—both semester-long and as weekend workshops. We also teach Rhino for computer-aided design, Wordpress and much more. Our aim is to offer our students the courses they’ll need to always be up to speed with technology advances.
