Graphic Arts

Graphic Arts deals with industries, arts, and processes that deliver a message with printed images on paper and other surfaces.  Draftsmanship, mechanical aptitude, and a fine sense for the use of colors and materials have always been necessary to create visually pleasing products.  Today, because virtually every aspect of printing technology utilizes electronics and computers, the industry is demanding workers with a wider range of complex and sophisticated skills, methods, and techniques.

A graduate may find employment as a typesetter, press operator, camera operator, estimator, layout and design artist, stripper, plate maker, bindery operator, or salesperson in commercial printing, in-house printing, or related industry.  The graduate may also become a computer graphic artist, a commercial artist, or be self-employed as a freelance artist.
