The objective of this course is to introduce the student to the processes, techniques, media, basic terminology, and concepts of graphic design and photography. Students in this multilevel course learn how to approach, plan, research, and solve graphic design problems. Students in the second and third year work more independently on graphic design projects. The course emphasizes many areas of graphic design including, but not limited to, lettering, advertising, book design, and music design.

Metalsmithing I, II and III

Students use metal and tools to create sculptural objects while exploring the historical aspects of metalworking. The three levels are grouped together, with each class exploring techniques that escalate in complexity and difficulty. The first year students learn basic skills such as sawing, filing, cold connections and soldering. In following years, students learn more advanced techniques. This gives advanced students the opportunity to amass a personal body of work. Mastery of design and application of imagery promotes the student’s ability to solve problems and create a personal style.
