At Parkside, art students work in new, well-equipped, spacious studios with faculty seriously committed to quality teaching as well as to production, exhibition, and publication in their own areas of professional specialization.
The design certificate provides basic training in how to create quality presentation and marketing materials. While this academic credential cannot compete with the skills acquired through the graphic design major, it does provide students with competitive tools that may enhance their career goals and employability.
As graphic design is a creative synthesis of both artistic and technological means to communicate ideas, students develop strategies for creative problem solving that relate to the numerous specialized fields of graphic design.

Active in my studio practice, I exhibit nationally, including solo shows in New York City, Chicago, and throughout California. My work has been featured and reviewed in several publications, including American Craft, Ceramics Monthly, National Council on Education in the Ceramic Arts (NCECA), and multiple books. I’ve given workshops, lectures, and classes at various professional venues around the country, and I've held Artist-in-Residence positions at City University of New York-Hunter College, Northern Clay Center (as a McKnight awardee), and Works San Jose -- among other internationally competitive studios.
