Graphic Design Curriculum

This curriculum, created by AIGA Minnesota with support from AIGA Innovate, is tailored towards high school teachers.

    Students are introduced to the industry, what designers do, and what graphic design actually is. Students will get a taste of what is to come in Units 2 and 3 by learning and practicing the creation of thumbnail sketches, rough sketches, and comprehensive design, the building blocks of the design process. 

      A list of the participants who helped create the curriculum, references used in its creation, and a glossary of terms for easy reference.

        These customizable rubrics are are meant as examples of how to assess this curriculum. There is one available per unit; unit 4 includes additional rubrics for use within that unit.
