Welcome to Commercial Art & Graphics at TCHS Pickering! Thanks for choosing our program and I am really looking forward to working with all of you throughout the 2016-17 school year. This year we have a great influx of new students as well as some very strong returning students. I'm hoping that each one of you bring all your ideas, creativity, and talent every day. Try to stretch what you know and take big chances every week.
Most weeks we will be working on three different project types:
- analog (hand created art)
- digital (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, others)
- photography (technical side of digital photography
I would love to see you approach these projects with your own ideas for how to complete them. I will share examples of finished works - but you can take any of these projects anywhere you wish. Making deadlines can be critical in the business world and if you need more time to complete a project it's on you to make that known to me.

We are in the midst of a twenty million dollar renovation. You know that based on our delayed starting date. We need to be extra careful about moving throughout the building until we're finished. We had issues getting the computers ready for opening day and the computer lab will probably not be fully functional until next week sometime. Due to that we'll be working on just two areas this week - analog and photography.
Analog - Popcicle Stick Challenge - see samples below. You can work in any coloring media you desire. I'd like to see two finished pieces - one bracelet and one flat. The flats you can figure out on your own.
