Graphic Arts


Students combine their creative talent with technical skills and tools including the industry standard applications of Photoshop, Acrobat, InDesign, and Illustrator. A Digital Photography component is included in this course. Topics include portfolio presentation, production methods, compositional practices and creative development with attention given to the manipulation of text and illusion. Effective design concepts and individual expression will be emphasized. Students are given the opportunity to participate in an annual "Art Bazaar" held at Richland Community College. Students will earn college credit through Richland Community College by taking this class.
