Continuing an established relationship, Associate Dean and Director Daric Christian traveled with Professor Keith Ellis to Aba Teachers University in the town of Shuimo, to work with 21 Art & Design students. The University is part of China’s Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture located in Western Sichuan Province China.
During the visit, Director Christian lectured on western design methodologies, including color theory and visual design hierarchy. He then led a workshop on digital photographic illustration working with students to apply the lecture concepts.
Professor Ellis presented the rules of working with western typography and led a workshop on the development of a custom typeface, giving the students a specific theme to incorporate.
Director Christian and Professor Ellis were also involved in cultural exchanges with the faculty of the School of Art & Design at Aba Teachers University exchanging teaching and design methodologies. Two Traditional Chinese Painting Faculty will be traveling to the School of Art & Design in October of 2017 to work with our students.
