In the Graphic Arts classes taught at the Tooele Community Learning Center students learn how to use industry-standard design software such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign, focusing on the principles of design, typography, color and creativity to make professional-looking designs.
The classroom’s printing lab is full of equipment offering students a variety of ways to print and produce their own artwork on items, such as t-shirts, heat-press vinyls, mugs, mouse pads, phone cases, stickers, and wide-format graphics, for signs, windows, and vehicle applications.
Students learn how to design, using the tools of creativity and various printing techniques, giving them a good understanding of how artwork goes from being an idea in to a printed piece.
The knowledge and skills learned in these classes will benefit anyone thinking of a future in any graphics arts or art and design related fields.
Beginner and advanced level classes are offered to sophomores, juniors, and seniors from all Tooele area high schools.
