Murray Middle School offers a Digital Design class that is part of the SJCCA program where students learn how to use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. This course enables students to develop awareness of visual communication concepts and graphic design techniques that reflect knowledge of the elements of art and principals of design as well as layout and composition. Students produce digital still and/or animate images through the single or combined use of computers, digital cameras, digital video cameras, scanners, photo editing software, drawing and painting software, graphic tablets, printers, and emerging technologies.
As the program culminates, students produce a portfolio of their work that can be used for entry into high school arts programs.
Digital Design is for all students even if you do not want to be a digital design creator. The technology skillsets that are built in digital design are paramount to helping students at all levels prepare for their future in a variety of careers.
Soon Murray Middle School will be the only middle school where students can receive their Adobe certification to put on their high school diploma and help further their career by making them more marketable in the workplace!
