About This Suitcase

This suitcase is a resource for students to explore different forms of creativity and communication. Visual Communication as art form is artwork that is used to convey ideas of information to the viewer. This can include signs, posters, advertisements, illustrations, websites, graphic design, typography, murals, street art, graffiti, comics, and zines. The goal of this suitcase is for students to explore the art in the world around them and the different ways art can communicate, educate, and entertain.
