New Course!
THEA 398 – Digital Image Manipulation

Mon & Wed 2:30 to 4:20

Professor Steve Kolbe

Digital Image Manipulation is a course designed to show how to enhance, alter, change, or create entire images entirely within a layering package such as Adobe Photoshop. Students will learn to create images from scratch within the software as well as how to correctly manipulate their pixels to a desired end result. We will be using both drawing tablets and mice as input devices to create our works. This course is intended as a helpful precursor to classes in motion graphics, compositing, and animation.


The Digital Arts Initiative is spearheaded by the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts and is a collaborative effort among faculty from the Department of Art and Art History, the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film, and the Glenn Korff School of Music to provide interested students from all majors hands-on experience applying current technology to the arts.

Students at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln interested in the potential of collaboration with their peers in art, music, theatre, film, computer science, and related areas may also enjoy a focused study in digital arts. By expanding the student’s understanding of the application of technology in the arts, the Digital Arts Initiative will enhance the student’s creative options within their major. These elective classes will bring together students from various disciplines to share their unique perspectives. Faculty members include professionals who are committed to helping students achieve their full artistic and technical potential. Standards are rigorous, and expectations are high.
