Graphic Design through Yearbook for Grades 9-12 (9:00)
Course: Graphic Design through Yearbook for Grades 9-12 (9:00)
Instructor: Melissa Bagwell
Curriculum: All supplies included. If possible, please bring personal laptop.
Course Description: Crop. Color. Create. Images. Fonts. And Layout. All words you hear in the graphic design world. Join me for a 30 week look into understanding the building blocks of graphic design. We’ll explore logo development, branding, and reaching your audience. Taking what we learn, we will have a running project to create a FE yearbook from cover to cover. Along the way, our class will take yearbook photos of individual students to include in the yearbook, as well as candid photos on campus during the day. Sprinkle in some well-written articles of life at FE, a great theme and composition, and we’ll produce a terrific yearbook your student can be proud to display.
