ATTENTION, this class is only for students who want to have fun while they learn and who are considering pursuing art as a career. Visual Design & Advertising is the place to start for a future in graphic design, animation, interior or fashion design.

Throughout the year students will build a portfolio for college and work placement. Monthly college and industry guest speakers visit and share up to date information. Students will design advertising and promotional materials including logos, corporate identity packages, T-shirts, CD booklets, menus, cereal boxes, plus many other projects; learning layout, illustration, and computer design techniques. Students will also have the opportunity to have their designs printed, working with our in-house print shop.
