Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss R. Elmes

Design is the study of photography, design, computer generated art, electronic media and film. It is through a combination of these forms we communicate, learn about ourselves and make meaning of the world.

•Basic computer skills
•Digital photography
•The design process using a brief.
•Folio presentation
•Type and Image

Level One Design is entirely practical, hands on and engaging for all students. Students select their own subject matter and learn how to generate and develop ideas for their theme. The culmination of their years work is the presentation of a final folio board outcome.

We welcome any student whether they have prior Photoshop or Design experience.
