Serious Graphic Design Students who wish to receive 3 college credits can take this class as an Articulated College Credit (ACC) course. This allows students to earn credits that can transfer to other MN Technical or Community Colleges. Students must achieve no less than 80% or a B for a final grade to receive ACC.

In this course students will continue working with Adobe Photoshop software by completing more advanced design projects as well as commercial art images. The student will create design projects that include product branding and development using 3 dimensional design, promotional flyers, business cards, CD covers, and original images for entry in various Art Competitions. New skills in this class will involve the use of a digital camera to create artistic graphic images and explore new printing processes to create images as fine art. Students will also learn how to use their personal voice, through multi-media presentations.

A student interested in taking Advanced Graphics must receive prior permission from the teacher.
