Program Description:

Artists create visual solutions. In Visual Communications, students create original artwork by exploring advertising design, photography, multimedia, teamwork, and employability skills. Critique art, produce promotional displays, market products, and construct packaging with original logos. The elements of design: color, line, shape, value, and texture make illustration, photography, and 3D graphics interesting to the viewer. Students construct a career portfolio and practice how to promote themselves in the business world. Industry-based software, such as the Adobe Creative Suite, is used with a 22-inch Macintosh/Apple Operating System to experience the state-of-the-art technology in graphic design. Learn to think like a designer. Identify your passion for the future. College credit is awarded to those that qualify. Analyze your options in the field of Arts and Communications.
