Attached is our syllabus for the 2012-2013 school year. Please share this document with your parents and return the acceptance form at the end of the document by August 30th. I’ll print out copies for those of you needing one on the first day of school.
We will be using student journals again this year. These journals are a critical part of any career in art. They will allow you to put together a portfolio of your growth while you’ve studied commercial art here at our school. In addition to showing artistic skills and the visuals, they will give you practice with critical writing skills. When I speak to employers, writing skills are consistently mentioned as a means of separating applicants that get hired and those not brought in for interviews. Formal writing is a skill that can get you a better job.
If you need to access any of the emails that I have sent over the summer, all have been posted to our class site.
I look forward to working with all of you again this coming year. Make sure you set high goals for yourself and I’ll do everything I can to help you reach those goals. It’s going to be a great year!
Thanks for choosing our school and our program,
Commercial Art Instructor
