i CAN'T BELIEVE ITS ALREADY FEBRUARY!! GOSH WHERE DOES TIME GO?
Advanced students have already begun to do live jobs and work with clients. Our focus is on college and career ready preparation, so we are more than eager to work with clients and learn the vast information that goes along with running a graphic design business.
Intro students have been working hard on Illustrator. They are completing a series of assignments where they are able to practice new skills learned in class. While sometimes frustrating, the joys of creating something digital that is truly their own, brings true excitement. Building confidence is what I do best! I want all of my intro students to know that they are entering a new adventure that can change their lives!
As we build our program, please remember to get the word out that KMHS Graphic Design is a remarkable program that encourages everyone to learn about the design industry and become a part of it if they so choose. In fact, this is the first year in a while that we are taking three students to SKILLS USA regional competition! We are so excited we can barely contain it! Camryn Scott will be competing in pin design, Megan Gorin will be competing in t shirt design, and DJ Wilkes will be competing in business and public speaking. As you can tell, we are gonna take the world by storm - and let every one know that we are more than glorified copy machine operators - WE ARE DESIGNERS!!!
Pass the word! I'm thinking about uploading some testimonials from students so they can describe what we do so the world can learn more about the world of graphic design. What do you think? Let us know
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. WE WANT TO KNOW.
Also, parents, if any of you work in the field of graphic design, photography or illustration, please let me know. We want our kiddos to hear from those in the industry and want them to have the benefits of learning from YOU. If you can come in and present a short program with visuals of your work, a power point, your portfolio or anything like that, we'd love to hear from you!
Hello all and welcome to the new year! This semester begins with two new graphic design intro classes - and wow are they going to do great things! My advanced students are itching to get into the heart of design work and we'll be headed there within a week or two. Before all the fun stuff, we've got to take care of the business of grades, portfolio preparedness, dressing for success and organizing the lab. Here we go!!
