Can’t-Miss-Gotta-See Photography Student Work!

We never get tired of showcasing the great work our students create in our myriad of online classes. This week, we’re featuring the best of the best from our photography based classes. Read on to see some of our recent favorite shots!

Our first image is from Food Styling 101 student Adrienne Robideaux. Adrienne has taken our full fleet of photo classes, plus more in other disciplines, and she has been a standout in all of them. But we just couldn’t resist featuring this beautifully styled and photographed image we saw on instagram. Check out more of her amazing images on her food blog Susie Makes Supper!

Lovely Graphic Design Student Work!

It’s been a bit since we featured work from our graphic design students, but boy are we back with a vengeance this week! Instructor Holly has handpicked some really amazing pieces for us to feature from our Illustrator 101 and Illustrator 102 online classes. Read on to see what you could be learning to create in just 4 short weeks!

Our first design is from Caitlin Moss who created this lovely pattern for her Week 2 homework in Illustrator 101. We adore her delicate arrows — wouldn’t it make a killer wallpaper (in real life or on your computer desktop)?! Great job Caitlin!
