Eighth-grade students in Anna Strattan’s studio in art class have been collaborating with the yearbook committee on a cover design. Each year, the committee challenges art students with the task of designing the front and back covers of the yearbook.
To prepare students for this important project, Strattan focused on graphic design, stylizing, and problem-solving through the use of graphics. Students explored various methods to effectively combine words, symbols, and images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. They have spent weeks experimenting and practicing hand-drawn typography, visual images, mixed media, and page layout techniques to produce a unique final result.
This class is a high school course offered to eighth-grade students who demonstrate the drive and aptitude to accelerate through a program of study in art at an advanced level. These students were selected based on a number of criteria, including art ability, work ethic, and productivity.
One design will be chosen for the yearbook. Stay tuned!
