Digital technology has affected art instruction at all levels of education. Digital image
creation becomes the main trend in computer art teaching. The most critical issue that has
been reported recently by many researchers is that an overemphasis on technical training and
insufficient understanding of pedagogy in computer art education challenges schools.
Therefore, in terms of perspective of computer art educator, the purpose of this project is to
study how to teach digital image creation without letting technical operations becoming the
center of the course. The research methods including literature review and expert inter
will be conducted. The researcher also makes objectively evaluate the issues and problems of
using computer to make art by non-art major college students. All interviews will be recorded
for analysis using the NVivo qualitative analysis software program. Documents, such as class
syllabi or computer art images, will also be collected from participants. Lastly, in the
presentation of the research findings, these data combined with the analysis of literature
sources will be analyzed to provide educators with effective teaching strategies for a less
technically-oriented computer art curriculum.
