This course offers a comprehensive study of the psychological and visual stimuli necessary for successful poster design. Prior to entry into the course, the vocational student must display mastery of the skills in speedball pen lettering, color, and brush lettering. The student receives a thorough exposure to the processes involved in poster development, and engages in the practical application of the skills, techniques, and methods through producing completed posters. Consisting of 135 clock hours, the course outline defines six distinct blocks of instruction: (1) orientation to poster making, (2) laying out of posters, (3) using the airbrush for posters, (4) airbrush rendering, (5) photo masking and retouching, and (6) creating special occasion posters, followed by a post-test. Instructional methods include lecture and demonstration, emphasizing active student participation and individual assistance in manipulative skills. These methods are supplemented by the use of visual aids, charts, diagrams, books, and instructional packages. A bibliography of basic references and sample post-tests conclude the course outline.
