Graphic design can seem like a foreign language, but we'll tackle it in a simple and straight forward way tonight at Spark!Come learn about color theory, making your prints look as beautiful as your digital files, typography, and simple steps to clear, beautiful graphics. We couldn't be more excited about this week! We'll meet at 7:30 pm at APDesign West. (Following Kendall's presentation) Remember, every time you attend, we'll enter your name in a drawing for a Moleskine and some of our favorite sketching pens. 
We need to have an insurance card on file for all IAPD students.  Due to the nature of our program, the tools used for your projects, and the field trips we take, insurance cards are required.  Please bring yours in to the office in Seaton 251 so we can put a copy in your file.  Let's get this done!
IAPD Student Council (from Erin Heiden)

It will start at6:45 on Thursday Sept. 17th. If any previous officers have their binders please bring them so we can pass them onto the next officer. 

To help with planning meetings for the future I copied the link to a survey. Please check any times that you are available to meet. Again we meet twice a month and the meetings are usually an hour.
