One of our most popular workshops, Advanced Graphic Design is constructed for those looking to take the next step in design using Adobe Photoshop, InDesign and other useful online design tools.
Last year’s graduates of this workshop returned to their high school yearbooks and newspapers with the tools to dazzle their readers, their advisers and their publication’s co-workers.
This is not a workshop for those content to sit and look at pictures. You’ll be put to work, spending hours each day getting hands-on experience with cutting-edge technology and design theory. You’ll also team up with other workshop classes to put your design skills to use on their content.
The goal is for each student to return to school with design ideas they can put into place on their publication in the coming school year.
