Graphic Design 1-2
Enrolling in this course, students will learn the basics of graphic design by preparing original art combining typography, page layout, and integrated graphic elements. They receive instruction in the following areas: elements of art and principles of design; mechanical and computer design methods; finishing of graphic products; historical and cultural development of graphics and the printing industry.

Our graphic design course is articulated with San Diego City College. An end of course exam and portfolio will be submitted, providing students with college credit in addition to their high school art credit.

Hello My name is Ashley Perry! I am the visual arts teacher at East Village Middle College High School. The arts at East Village is apart of San Diego Unified School Districts CCTE program, College and Career Technical Education.
Why CCTE? CCTE courses allow students to explore arts, while learning industry standards with real world applications. In these courses, we aim to better prepare your child for their college education and career.
I went to San Diego State University, receiving my bachelor's in Kinesiology. After a couple of years teaching PE and 10 years in the industry of photography, I ended up back in the classroom, my home away from home. Sharing my passion for art, experience in the industry and mentoring students while they achieve and reach for their visions makes teaching apart of who I am.
