This class was extremely tedious at times so it is in your best interested to stay engaged during lessons and lectures. Projects are pretty specific but are a great way to introduce you to digital media. You will learn a lot whether you find it interesting or not.

This course certainly equipped me with various important and applicable skills for graphic and digital design. However, Prof. Leftheris' lectures are rambling, long, and include too much extraneous info. She overexplains, which makes it difficult to stay engaged and present with the instruction. She is knowledgable, but needs to be more concise. She loses a lot of attention with the format of the class. However, she is extremely friendly and personable, and a great person to go to with specific questions about art and design.

Michelle is a great professor and is very accommodating to student needs. The class is very slow-paced, though, and a good way to get an art credit our of the way. Material and projects were still very interesting and fun to do.

Michelle was always really enthusiastic in every class. The class is made up of a lot of learning lecture days followed by out-of-class projects and then a full class critique for most projects. As someone who came into the class with prior knowledge of design, I found it slow-moving at times, but for someone who is completely new, I think the speed is well thought out. There is plenty of time to create work you are proud of, and without real grading, it comes down to the student to get the rewards of the class.

A great class if you are looking to get your art distributions out of the way. The class moves relatively slow and it very lecture-heavy, which is something you should keep in mind if you want an art class with a bigger focus on creating art in class.
