Introduction to Graphic Design
Instructor: 
Price: 
$257.00

You may love funky t-shirts, posters, magazines, and other graphic materials, but may not quite understand how they are made. This class is the perfect introduction for teens interested in learning more about graphic design. Students will explore image-making, basic typography, and the integration of the two through a series of fun and fast-paced assignments and exercises. All projects will address form, composition, hierarchy, and creativity. Students will develop a design process and a critical visual vocabulary through experimentation, exploration, and group critiques. Teens enrolled in this class should expect to work in the MCAD computer labs and at home. / Materials fee of $5 in addition to class tuition. / There will be no class on July 4. / Open to students ages 15–18. MCAD strictly adheres to these age guidelines and is unable to allow exceptions. / View complete policies here.
