If drawing is your passion and you want to unleash your unique personality, then Commercial Art may be the shop for you! Begin with the basics of drawing and design theory to develop your skills as an artist. Move onto Photoshop and Illustrator to take your designs to the next level. As skills continue to develop, the student will begin to use Dreamweaver, Flash, or Premiere to express their creativity with web and multi-media design. Commercial Art prepares students for college and work so that they can advance their career in the graphic design industry.
