In this Lesson Plan we will present the different technological tools on the use of graphic design and how it is implemented in our daily lives, in addition, we have focused on the development of advertisements in order to have absolute knowledge of these technological tools.
Grade level: graduate students, advanced undergrads, persons with analyzed research results
Course length: 1 semester, 4-6 months
Objective: This course empowers scientists to engage with their own data, each other, and the public through art. Through collective brainstorming, prototyping, and feedback from professional artists, students will create a project that expresses their own research through any artistic medium of their choice. The course typically culminates in a public art exhibition where students interact with a general audience to discuss their research, art, and what it means to be a scientist.
Blender 3D: Noob to Pro is a product of shared effort by numerous team members and anonymous editors. Its purpose is to teach people how to create three-dimensional computer graphics using Blender, a free software application. This book is intended to be used in conjunction with other on-line resources that complement it.

Communication is key in our daily lives. We need to have access to what is on our calendar – the school calendar. And yes, it’s great to have it electronically, but when there is a large group of people checking dates for an event it’s nice to have a large format for at-a-glance information. In this lesson, students will learn to create a large format 18” x 24” calendar file that could be printed and posted in a classroom to use for reference to upcoming events for the month. In our small community it has also become a public relations tool for our school and several are posted in businesses throughout our school district. Using the picture file format of the design, the calendar is also shared electronically each month for smaller print format in the community newsletter and online access.
This google doc lesson includes a demonstration video of how to create a mandala in Photopea, a set of written instructions and an assignment that goes along with the video.
The project objective is to have students make a realistic 3-D model that is to scale. Student Mission: Your objective is to create a 3-D model of a building of your choice or imagination. The building must be to scale relative to an average-sized person. You make recreate a dwelling, barn or famous building OR create your dream home. Your building must be to scale and should be finished (windows, roof, shutters, steps, furniture, etc.). The outside of your building should include some surrounding features (e.g. bushes, trees, sidewalks, street, shed, etc.). Your final project should incorporate the elements listed on the rubric and be as detailed as possible. Be creative!
Following the principles of design and production process, students will research a given topic, plan and create a design for a 2" x 3" rectangular or 3.25” circular magnet. Advanced students will be challenged to create a unique shape for a magnet.
This book was written by two artist educators who teach digital art and design studio foundation classes. While teaching classes that take place in software laboratories, we noticed that many of our students expected to learn to use software, but gave little consideration to aesthetics or art and design history. A typical first day question is, "Are we going to learn Photoshop in this class?" This book is a mash-up of the Bauhaus Basic Course and open source software such as Inkscape, Gimp, Firefox, and Processing. We have taken some of the visual principles and exercises from the Bauhaus Basic Course and adapted them into exercises for these applications.
