New Classes offered for 2018-19

Graphic Design I (Materials Fee applies) 

Design is an ever expanding and relevant part of our globalized, interconnected world. In this course, we will explore what constitutes the field of graphic design. We will adopt the language of visual expression through a variety of methods and materials including typography, abstraction and drawing, photography, research, project based assignments, lectures, exercises, and class critiques. The core of this course will be a focus on the principles of composition, leading to further consideration of graphic design as a state of communication, form, language, identity, observation, and aesthetics.
Although software mastery is not the primary objective of the course, we will learn the following computer programs and core competencies associated with each:
Adobe Photoshop Adobe Illustrator Adobe InDesign
In this course, we will address the following questions:
What is design? What is design thinking? What is/isn’t art? Which mediums, if any, are design specific? What are the core competencies required as a graphic designer? What are the greater applications of a graphic design education?
Pre-requisite: Completion of Studio Art 1 or Instructor approval
