Grade: 9-12
Credits: 1/2

This course will introduce students to computer graphic design, emphasizing the fundamental elements and principles of design and following the National Standards for the Arts. Engaging in the design process, students will learn to interpret a design brief, prepare sketches and initial drafts, incorporate client feedback, and follow through with a finished project. Students will learn several software programs to design and layout various projects, which might include posters for their class dances; logos, signs, social media posts, etc. for local companies; style-guides, media brochures, or other real-world design tasks. Students will prepare a portfolio of their work for display at the Arts Night in May. Written reflections will accompany each project. While homework will be minimal, this course will require student motivation, perseverance, and self-directed learning.
