Graphics Design

Welcome to Vista del Lago's new Graphic Design Pathway.

Students participating in our CTE Pathway will have access to state-of-the-art digital media technology and will be required to learn how to use these tools to create works of art for print publication, digital media, and studio art applications.

Below are some of the hardware and software students will become proficient using through the program:

  • MacOS
  • Wacom Cintiq Tablets
  • Adobe Creative Cloud
  • Photoshop
  • Lightroom Classic
  • Illustrator
  • InDesign
  • Dreamweaver
  • Digital SLR Cameras
  • Vinyl Plotter
  • Large Format Photo Printer
  • Direct to Garment Printing
  • Screen Printing

Students are encouraged to work collaboratively in the classroom environment.  Students are each responsible for completing and turning in assignments, but collaboration and discussing ideas is strongly encouraged.  Some projects will require students to work collaboratively.  In a work environment, individuals have to learn how to work collectively to accomplish a goal and for this reason it is embedded into the classroom dynamics.

Students are evaluated using a combination of the Arts, Media, and Entertainment Pathway standards, and our Visual And Performing Arts Rubric.  Please view the linked PDF below for more information on the CTE Standards.
