Graphic Design Projects at Art Show

Graphic Design

Graphic Design is an advanced art class. Today’s culture is a visual culture. This course challenges students to produce meaningful work through their use of graphic design solutions. Class critiques provide a Christian context through which students judge all visual design. Projects are based on photography, traditional art methods, and digital applications, and apply an advanced understanding of design principles to a variety of applications. The required text provides a solid framework for the student to understand and learn step-by-step instructions for a variety of graphic design solutions. Weekly visual journals allow students to explore their own personal voice in art. Students are required to bring a laptop to class.

Students are required to bring a laptop to class that can support the Adobe Creative Cloud software (Adobe subscription is provided by ECS).

Kristin Stitzlein holds a Visual Communications from the University of South Carolina in Columbia, S.C., and is thankful to be a part of the ECS faculty. She says, "I believe education is one of God's greatest gifts of grace to us – the ability to seek him out and get to know him and his creation, as well as the ability to use our education to serve others and be culture-makers alongside him. I hope to foster a lifelong love of learning in my students and encourage them to see and walk in the gifts and callings God has uniquely given to each of them."
