It is important to note that these classes are fast paced and aligned to the college level so that students may receive college credits. The course framework covers a broad spectrum of ideas that is meant to give you an overall understanding of the many careers available in the commercial art industries. Attendance is also very important. This is a project-based learning environment that utilizes a number of tools and expensive equipment. Missed classes will be made up after school by appointment or during my Smart Times. Information about my Smart Time policies can be found here.
