Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this graphic design class:

Learn the graphic design theory and the essential Adobe applications, including Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator. In this summer course in NYC, high school students work on real-world design projects.

The first section of the camp covers Adobe Photoshop. Students explore topics such as retouching photos, combining images, preparing graphics for the web, and more.

The next section covers InDesign comprehensively and includes creating page layouts with text, graphics, and multiple pages. Our young designers learn to style text, import photos + graphics, define/use colors, add multiple pages, and thread text frames (just to name a few skills.)

Lastly, students begin their mastery of Illustrator and create numerous graphics throughout the course. Expert instructors guide students through the use of standard drawing tools, the Pen tool, Type, Compound Paths, Effects, Layers, Masks, Patterns, Blends, and Colors.

Throughout this training, students work on a wide variety of projects to build a dynamic portfolio of work that any professional would be proud to claim as their own!

    This was an awesome class, great for understanding the software and experimenting with design, and it's not too difficult to follow even though I'm a beginner.

    I find it really convenient that there is an ebook because if you miss something or want something to look back on, you can always refer to the lesson plan. I also like how the class content relates it back to purpose: why does this matter? How can you apply this to everyday life? How can you use this concept in other programs?

    The instructor was very helpful and supportive during these last few weeks. He always had every answer to my questions and seemed very passionate about his job. This made it easier and way more fun to learn web design.
