  • Nursing Home Partnership
    In addition to your regular assignments we might be adding a weekly task during this time of isolation.    

    Each of you have been emailed some info abut local nursing home residents.  From this information, please make a piece of artwork you think they would like.  Take a pic of it, message it to me, and I will share it with them.  First come first serve.  Email me which number (person) you are making art for.  We want to cover everyone!   

    If you are a NAHS member, this will also count as community service hours.

Graphic Communications:

  • Graphics class is dedicated to the exploration of our ever changing world through the lens of aesthetic awareness, creativity, and ability.  The class teaches students the baseline skills needed for a professional art career.  Students will learn Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, digital photography, fine art, critique skills, portfolio assembly, resume writing, artist statement creation, critical thinking, teamwork, and overall professionalism.  Graphics is a very student centered environment and each student gets out of it what they put into it.
