Design Skills

This program is different from other programs in the Arts A/V Technology & Communication Career Cluster in one very important aspect. The Commercial Art Technology program, more than any other program, deals with the fundamentals of Graphic Design and Illustration.

Our frameworks require us to work with and understand principles of art: balance, contrast, unity, repetition, proportion, pattern and rhythm as well as the elements of art: line, shape, texture, color, mass and value.
