Attended: Rhino: CAD for Jewelers


Was a good introduction to Rhino if you have experience with 2D CAD programs, and a basic understanding of how to build/edit shapes. I wouldn’t suggest it for someone with zero background in CAD.

Steven Newman, Was a terrific professor. He has real working knowledge of how to put together your own website by using wordpress. I liked that he showed us real life examples he is working on for other clients and that he is a working wordpress Art Director/designer in the field. I learned so much by taking this class and now have my own online porfolio website that looks amazing. If you are interested in putting together your own website, a shop, your online portfolio or blog take this class! You will have an amazing website by the end and he will take the time to show you how. He is patient and has a very dry sense of humor. I really enjoyed taking the class with Steven and will also be taking the class he teaches for UX UI development. I highly recommend this class to anyone interested in learning about wordpress and how to put together a beautiful, professional looking website.

Carla Douglas, Is a wonderful professor. She has a great sense of humor and you will be laughing while learning illustrator. I had fun with all the projects drawing a figure, making a rotosketch, making an infographic, designing a package. She cares about her students and takes the time to make sure that everyone is up to speed with all the tools in illustrator. I will be taking illustrator advanced with her. And really enjoyed this class. She is one of the best and brightest professors at Pratt and I wish she were teaching other subjects as well in graphic design. She is a working Art Director in graphic design and has practical working knowledge to share with all her students. I highly recommend anyone interested in learning how to use illustrator to take this class. I had so much fun learning and she promoted a very supportive and caring environment for everyone no matter what level you are at. By the end of class people who did not know how to use illustrator at all had projects that were amazing!

Attended: Experimental Typography for the Web


Angela Wyman, the professor for the class was very knowledgeable about type for the web. The projects were fun and interactive for online use and print. I also liked that we developed our own type on fontstruct and glyphs for use in illustrator and developed an online magazine. I will definitely be applying my new found knowledge of typography to advance my career going forward and thoroughly enjoyed taking this class. It would be great if she were teaching other classes at Pratt! You will learn and have so much fun taking this class, I highly recommend it.

This class was very good. Mark is a great teacher. I hope he has more classes except in the afternoon or evening. Some places simply were difficult to figure out how to get to.
