    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it counts as an elective, and its also a nice break from the demanding curriculum. I recommend this course because it also teaches you important art history, and techniques when creating art.

    The highlights of this course was studying different artists, and learning their background, because that when you come to an understanding of what made that particular artist draw, paint, or create the way they did.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    All you need to succeed, would be an eye for detail when completing assignments, and artwork. Other than that, all you need is to show up and participate.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I love the study of type. Emily Moody was the best teacher for this course. She was knowledgeable and tried so hard to share her love for typography. I'm a typography lover now because of this course.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was learning the do’s and do nots of typography. Everyday in the media you see typography. I love knowing the different type of typefaces, or fonts. I love pointing out when I see Helvetica or Bembo in advertisements. I loved learning the history of a typeface the reasoning behind the type. I loved learning the beauty of typography.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Love and accept what you are learning. Yes it may be considered menial, but once you have the power to influence good design with solid typography you'll be a companies greatest secret asset.
