This class will provide students with an opportunity gain ACA (Adobe Certified Associate) certification in Photoshop, InDesign or Illustrator. Students may choose the software they would like to gain certification in, based on their interests. All three programs are a part of Adobe’s Visual Design curriculum. Becoming ACA certified through Adobe is an accomplishment that can set students apart and prepare them to be competitive members in college and work. Students will work with Adobe approved course material to prepare for the exam. The final exam will be taken at the end of the semester, administered through CertiPort by the teacher in the classroom, for a reduced fee of $78 (the exam costs twice this outside of school).
In addition to certification, students will work with the teacher to prepare a professional portfolio website using Adobe Muse(if you are a senior going on internship, there will not be time in the semester schedule to accomplish this). This will be a platform for students to include their resumes, a portfolio of their artwork, as well as any other pertinent information. If the schedule does not allow time for learning and using Muse, students will create a portfolio on Adobe Portfolio.
Our class is on Google Classroom! This is where you will submit your assignments. Ask me for the code to join.
