Welcome to Mr. Frick's Class Website

Graphic design is about effective communication. The challenge of graphic design is to create unique and memorable visual solutions to enhance the effectiveness of message that is being communicated. You as a graphic design student will use a combination of computer skills and your visual creativity to make design images for stand alone artwork, presentations, websites and printed materials. These images can be stills, animated or interactive. Graphic designers have many career options as most large companies require websites and branding imagery to be done by an internal design department or an outside design firm. 

All of the computer graphic courses are electives you can receive technology and art credits by taking them. Because of the challenging nature of these graphic courses, I consider my job as your teacher is to help, guide, and encourage you to meet your potential. These courses combine both technology and artistic skills.  We are in this together. If you have any questions or need help in clarifying information I am here to help. If I cannot answer your question at that moment please feel free to talk with me to arrange a time when we can sit down and get you back on track. What I ask of you is to always do your best and to realize that not everyone learns everything on the first try but if you keep giving it your best effort and putting in the time you will eventually master the information.

While we go over the course syllabus and expectations in class, students and parents can review the course information found to the left in the navigation bar. I want everyone to be successful in my class. My best suggestion to you to accomplish this is to be present, fully engaged,prepared and do your best. When you are absent you do not get the benefit of the full class discussion of a project or technique.  To help you in
 being prepared. The resources that you will be using in class can be found in Google Classroom for your specific class. If you would like a printed copy of any of the information please feel free to print to the library copier. 

Did you know that you can take these courses for honors credits and you can also receive college credits when you take Computer Graphics I,   Computer Graphics II (Digital Photography) and Website Development.
