Academics . Curriculum . Digital Canvas Initiative 

Digital Canvas Initiative

In the fall of 2011, CIA launched its Digital Canvas Initiative, an ambitious integration of the iPad into the freshman art and design curriculum. With a commitment to teaching essential group- and project-based courses, CIA faculty added new opportunities for problem-based learning through collaboration. 

From sketch battles, to real-time classroom research, iPads support what has been considered a primarily hands-on education by eliminating barriers to group work and serving as a portable source of creative apps, tools for research, organization, communication, and collaboration.

CIA’s Digital Canvas Initiative supports:

  • creative risk taking and experimentation critical to artistic growth
  • problem-based learning using technology in which incoming freshmen are most familiar
  • research and quick information gathering for in-class projects
  • collaboration through group-based work 

iPads for all CIA Freshmen

All CIA freshmen receive an iPad to keep upon graduation. iPads are fully integrated into CIA’s Foundation curriculum supporting group-based work and creative exploration essential to a robust first-year experience.
