Mr. Petersen's Digital Imagery Class set out to create a Photoshop composite to use as an advertisement for the art department. They had to come up with a concept, shoot the images, and complete the post-production on the computer. Below you will find the final image and some behind-the-scenes footage that will give you some insight about the process. The final version below was composited by Taylor Neyens.
Congratulations to all of our students who participated in the College Invitational at the Figge Museum! An extra pat on the back for Taylor Neyens, who received an Honorable Mention for her photography piece, Admire the Wilted.
The Art Collective (Student Art Club) is selling T-shirts until November 23rd, see below for details.

Today in Digital Imagery, the class learned how to experiment with new face-aware liquify tools in photoshop. The results can sometimes be a bit disturbing :) Hopefully you can tell which image is the "before."
Art 281 and Art 282, instructed by Professor Melissa Hebert-Johnson, are courses based on art history. Art 281 specifically focuses on a variety of different artworks from the Ancient World to the Gothic Age. In comparison, Art 282 focuses on artworks from the Renaissance to the 21st Century. Next semester (Spring 2017), Art 281 will be offered as an online course, whereas Art 282 will be offered as a typical lecture class at BHC. These classes are also offered in the fall. If you’re very interested in art history, Professor Hebert-Johnson will also be teaching Art 286, “Survey of Non-Western Art” in the spring. In this class, students learn about art from non-Western cultures like Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. These courses are lecture-based, and students will get the opportunity to view outstanding examples of art from many different time periods. These artworks include paintings, sculpture, ceramics, architecture, and many more. Not only will students view examples of the art itself, but also learn about the artists behind the masterpieces, the techniques they used, and the stories that some artworks portray. Although these courses are not lab-based like most art classes are, learning about the history of art is not only fascinating, but can lend a hand in enhancing a student’s own creativity. After learning about the history of art, students can apply their new found knowledge to their own artistic creations. Artists from the past have given us the gift of inspiration, use it wisely.
