Art Club is ROCKING!

Every Tuesday afternoon from 3-4pm students meet in the art room to collaborate, share, and encourage each other in creative endeavors. Our first art club meeting was a success! The art room was overflowing with young artists creating work on reclaimed 16x20 canvas.

If your student would like to join art club please encourage them to come to the next meeting. We will be planning our club shirt designs, murals, and trash can art.



Please make sure you have a ride!

What is Graphic Design???

I am fortunate to be able to teach a Graphic Design class in our new MAC lab.

This class will introduce students to two-dimensional elements and principles of Graphic Design using Adobe Photoshop CS2 - CS6. Students will be exposed to studio practices in Advertising, Graphic Design and Illustration. Assignments will emphasize the skills, methodologies, and processes necessary for successful practice in Advertising, Graphic Design, and Illustration. Through a problem solving approach with formal and conceptual experimentation, students will develop clear understanding of visual communication. Emphasis will be given to the importance of presentation and craftsmanship. In the end, you will work on traditional design problems leading to a portfolio illustrating concepts learned.

So far our graphic design students have been excelling. We are currently working on creating personal websites to post work online.

Art One Students Collaborate on a Red Ribbon Week Mural

Art one students volunteered their time and energy to design a mural for Red Ribbon Week. Each class added to the mural creating a very layered beautiful look. Students demonstrated shading techniques by adding highlights and shadows to each ribbon.
