Last Year's Field TripPosted by Maria Arizpe-Sanchez at 9/14/2016 7:00:00 AM
Last Year's Graphic Arts Club field trip was full of learning and fun! Our first stop was at TSTC's Digital Arts lab where we were introduced to the Digital Media studies by Mr. Vavra. He gave students a thorough overview of the current Digital Arts program. Students learned valuable information like how they will be expected to use Intuos drawing pen/tablets instead of mouses, and the significance of mood boards, mind-mapping and product mock-ups in the design process. We also viewed a game coding and simulation demo and a completed student project.
Our next stop was for lunch at Chick-fil-A and then a movie at the theater. It was neat to see how students notice so many more design and character details after taking the CTE Graphic Arts courses at Harlingen High School South.
