In this class you will learn how to creatively problem solve and tackle artistic challenges, while learning life long skills such as persistence, reflection, observation, and self-critique. You will explore the world of graphic artist/designer.
Graphic art is distinct from other art traditions because graphic art pieces:
1)Consist of both images and words
2)Are designed with an intentional message for a specific target audience
You’ll become comfortable with the computer and other common digital technologies, such as the scanner, drawing tablets, inkjet printers, digital cameras. We will mostly use Adobe Photoshop, although some basic Adobe Illustrator skills may be taught.
This course will include:
•Basic drawing / illustration skills
•What makes for good design and how to use the Elements and Principles of Art & Design
