Class Experience

Students will be able to demonstrate artistic techniques using a variety of mediums. Students will conceptualization their art projects from start to finish, follow through with their concept by planning and executing a completed project.
I have a Degree in Graphic Design, a Bachelor of Science, and over 20 years of working experience in art and graphic design including being the CEO of Little Daisy Media.  I believe that the art of graphic design, or at the very least an appreciation for that art, is something that everyone should practice.  Graphic design floods our visual perception from everywhere, from the products we buy to the advertisements we are exposed to.  I want to share my knowledge of graphic design so that kids understand the basic elements and can build on that to become creative critical thinkers.
Students will submit in the classroom throughout the week:
1. Art Project Planning sketches
2. Art Creation Assignment

*Students are given the week to complete these assignments to allow time for thoughtful analysis and creation as well as to exercise their time-management skills.
