Art and Visual Communication

The Blinn College District Art and Visual Communication Programs cater to an array of students, including those looking to attend school full-time or working professionals seeking to refine skills or learn a new trade. It is recommended that students possess basic computer literacy skills when entering this program. The courses are designed to equip students with a foundation in art and design as well as a workplace-competent portfolio needed to enter into the industry. Course topics include digital imaging and publishing, computer illustration, and web design.

In addition to hands-on learning opportunities using Adobe CC programs such as Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, and Premiere, students learn and practice in a graphic design lab equipped with printers, Macs, and PCs. Students also have access to the Digital Arts Lab, which is equipped with PCs, DSLR cameras, Wacom tablets, and studio lighting equipment.
