Brazosport College’s Department of Art is offering two new classes this coming fall semester geared toward those with creative minds.

The new courses — Computer Graphic Design and Beginning Sculpture I — are perfect for students seeking to enhance their artistic minds and abilities, as well as getting experience in creative, art-related fields.

The Computer Graphic Design class, taught by BC instructor Jackson Zorn, will emphasize design and artistic conception, while providing students the important elements of graphic design, such as color theory, mechanical drawing and typography. The course also will utilize the most up-to-date Adobe digital tools, including Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.

No experience with Adobe products is required to take the course.

“We will be taking the tools you have that creates art, such as photography, drawing or painting, and pushing them further to create artistic graphic design,” Zorn said. “It won’t just be creating art and it won’t just be creating advertisements. It will be combining all of these in order to create a stronger, visual image.”

In Sculpture I, BC instructor Kamilah Campbell will assist students in focusing on the development of an idea from concept to completion through the use of traditional and non-traditional three-dimensional materials.

By the end of the semester, students will understand the variety of forms sculpture can take, including conceptual art, performance art, found-object integration and installation art.

“I will encourage students to embrace the experimental approach to their forms in order to bridge the gap between traditional antecedents and contemporary possibilities,” Campbell said. “You don’t need to have experience to join the class, but you’ll have plenty of experience once you’ve completed it.”

Full art scholarships are also available for eligible students. Call 979.230.3224 for scholarship information.

Campbell and Zorn are both BC instructors of Art and have earned Masters of Fine Arts from Notre Dame University, as well as Bachelors of Fine Arts from Clemson University.
