By Clark A. Cory and Assistant ProfessorW. Scott Meador and Assistant Professor


The transition from traditional graphics into computer graphics over the past decade has brought about a multitude of changes that graphics educator’s and other graphics professionals have had to address and incorporate. The ever evolving integration of Computer Aided Design (CAD) in architecture and engineering have revolutionized the design and documentation process. In the graphic communication area, changes from layout and design to desk-top publishing and interactive ‘new media’ design for CD-ROM and Web distribution are but a few of the changes graphic educators have to keep up with. One problem with new technology is computer graphics encompasses several components and areas, and some of these areas are not able to progress into technology as quickly as others. This paper will give an overview of the Shades, Shadows, and Perspective course at Purdue University and how it has evolved into a
