For five years, I taught graphic design, digital media, and yearbook courses as a teacher at an all-girls, 6th-12th grade school of choice in Fort Worth, TX. Teaching mostly middle school and our underclassmen, we did everything from Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign to photography, videography, stop-motion animation, and branding/graphic design. While there, I became the department head, the campus technology coordinator, and I helped start the student-led, in-house advertising agency. Prior to teaching, I worked in advertising in Austin, NYC, and Fort Worth. I'm now a work-from-home mom to two kiddos and a freelance graphic designer and educator.
It is suggested that students submit their work after completing the weekly video tutorial for feedback or questions, but additional homework will not be required.
1 file available upon enrollmentStudents will need Photoshop downloaded onto their computer before the course begins. You can start with a 7-day free trial, and transition to the $9.99/mo "Photography plan" to get access to Photoshop and Lightroom. (Lightroom won't be used in this course but this bundle is the most affordable way to get Photoshop.)
Students will get video and/or written feedback and suggestions for improvement.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
