- Visual Communication Design 8th gradeart and design curriculum for 8th graders
For My Senior Arts Capstone Project, My partner and I opted to format a visual communication design curriculum for 8th graders, and then get in the classroom and teach for 8 weeks. Our once a week, for 8 week sessions covered illustration, perspective, custom lettering, identity development, composition, and graphic design principles. We were thrilled to get with the students each week to share our passion for thoughtful design. We found that they were quite enthused as well. By the end of the session, a local print shop (thank you Eastwind Screenprinting!) agreed to print out 40 tshirts for us for free. We created the shirt design compiling scanned images created by each of the 34 students contained within a larger composition of our own.
