Creating GIFS in Prof. Anthony Capparelli’s Motion Graphic and Holiday Card Assignment, allows students to add movement and motion to their illustrations. They choose their inspiration from assigned themes such as album art, tourism, and theater events.

Their earlier assignment was a two-page graphite value study — a historical illustration for a children’s book. “The GIF assignment was quite a change for them,” says Prof. Capparelli.

Building on the skill set from previous assignments, students employed a mix of traditional and digital techniques to produce artwork that could be digitally and visually manipulated.

“Students discover there is more than one way to accomplish their project goals, and more than one digital program to aid in their processes,” says Prof. Capparelli.
