Advertising Design for the Golf Course
Coach Marie recently challenged our new class of first year Graphic Art students with a real world project. Coach is organizing a Golf Tournament for this weekend and needed signs for the business sponsors. These signs will be placed on the golf course around the greens area as advertising for the sponsors. Ms. Peterson's 4th block students gladly took the challenge and produced 18 different signs as well as some coupons for one of the businesses. GREAT JOB EVERYONE! They look good.... don't they?
