Computer Graphics provides ROP and CTE credit.
It is a College Prep class, and satisfies UC’s A-G Art Requirement.
Students begin their foundational studies with Computer Graphics, a course designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of Graphic Design and Digital Illustration. Students gain a working knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite, including Photoshop, Illustrator, XD, InDesign, and After Effects, as they build their historical, contextual, and hands-on understanding of working within the arena of the Digital Arts and Design through a series of practical projects.
After the foundational Computer Graphics course, students are invited to continue their studies by building a professional design portfolio in Advanced Computer Graphics. Projects typically include Editorial Design, Book Cover Design, Poster Design, Character Design, App Design and Prototyping, Packaging Design, and Branding/Identity Design.
Students may also ask the instructor for permission to enroll in AP 2D, a majority-computer-based studio art course designed by the AP College Board. Speak with instructor for details.
