Academy of Visual Arts: Graphic Design

At our 9th -12th grade alternative high school, we have just started a dynamic art academy and I am the only art teacher and academy leader. My goal is to help students learn specific ways to think creatively and develop original, innovative ideas. Only by using their knowledge of art in unique and imaginative ways can they hope to make an impression in any area of the arts or design field. Technology is essential in creating an atmosphere that cultivates success; therefore, students will also demonstrate technological implementation of assigned projects. The course will begin to couple studio practice using new media to explore interrelationships between artists and technology.
