Graphic communications

Learners are briefed to design the front of a new building. Using the Clyde Waterfront website for research, learners create a design using knowledge of both one point perspective and colour theory using culture as their inspiration. This project develops learners skills in using both one point perspective and colour theory whilst providing a cross curricular theme for their learning and opening opportunities to link with local community and businesses. The finished design will form an exhibition of work for internal and external partners to view/judge.
