Description

THE HISTORY OF GRAPHIC DESIGN

Times: Mondays and Wednesdays from July 10-31, 6pm-7:30pm

Instructor: Anna DesOrmeaux

Location: The NOCCA Institute annex, 2832 Royal Street

Tuition: $155

Graphic design pervades our social and cultural landscape, and is often overlooked and underappreciated as an art. Who designed the ubiquitous "I Love NY" logo? How have typefaces historically been used to advance political ideologies? Who created some of the most memorable book and album covers? From Gutenberg in the 15th century to Paula Scher today, we will examine the history and development of communication graphics. The course is designed to encourage students to be more aware of their environment and to think critically about the role graphic design plays in shaping our perceptions and influencing our decisions.

REQUIREMENTS

No previous knowledge of art or design history is required. Enrollment is limited to adults age 18 and older.

NOTE

A minimum number of students must enroll in this class for it to "make". If fewer students enroll than are necessary, the class will be cancelled and full refunds will be issued. If we have to cancel the class, we'll make every effort to notify students at least one week before the first class meeting.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

She holds a B.A. in Art History and Psychology and M.A. in Art History from Louisiana State University, where she studied Renaissance painting with the great Dr. Mark Zucker and wrote a thesis titled "The Black Death and Its Effect on Fourteenth- and Fifteenth-Century Art." Anna currently works at The National WWII Museum and is nearing the completion of her Master of Arts in Teaching from UNO.
