As active artists, researchers, and educators, who have taught in the university studio classroom for over 25 years, we have been dedicated to researching the studio learning experience of artists and designers through action research. Over this time, art and design programs in higher education have adapted to prepare graduates to be engaged, digital natives. One noticeable outcome of this change is that creating in an analog method within many studio classrooms has evolved and been modified to center around learning digital tools and production with digital output. As artists, we have consciously embraced the world of digital tools while also nurturing handmade and analog practices. In our research practice, we were seeking to understand better how advocating and actualizing a reframing of digital and analog practices fosters a more vital visual literacy and creative process in classrooms across disciplines. In this session, we propose sharing our inquiry and the work of other contemporary artists and designers, whose processes demonstrate an evolution of creative practices where the digital and analog intersect. With our research into creative processes and the role of the digital and analog in that process, we have cataloged a rich and robust terrain for artists and designers to reflect on and consider. The audience will gain an understanding of methods for reframing pedagogical instruction to advance a student-centered curriculum where the digital and analog interconnect.
