This class is an introduction to the elements of graphic design, a subcategory of the field of Visual Communication. Students will learn some of the tools of digital image making and are expected to develop artwork that demonstrates awareness of its historical and social context, and at the same time, presents a personal artistic voice. Lectures, museum visits and readings will address relevant questions to the field of Graphic Design as well as familiarize students with the artists and writers that help shape our time. The most important objective of this class is to produce artwork that is intellectually complex in its ability to communicate ideas and is also artistically instigating and visually compelling.
