"Graphic Design: 'Art Event' Poster for the Highland Arts Programs"
THE PROJECT: We have been working on a ton of graphic design "problems" this semester and we have been asked to help the Highland Art Departments to create a poster for their upcoming Arts Showcase, called the "Highland Art Extravaganza." We are on rather tight deadline for this project, as the posters will need to be selected for printing by the 27th of March at the end of the day. Submissions must be made by 4:00 p.m. on the 28th of March.
THE EVENT: The Art Extravaganza will be a school wide celebration of the arts at Highland High School, being held in late April. The event will feature art galleries, drama presentations, musical and vocal performances, etc. The poster will be used for hanging in the school and the community for marketing purposes, as well as for the cover of the event program.
Here are the SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS regarding the creation of the Art Extravaganza Poster:

CREATION and SUBMISSION OF THE POSTER: Be creative with the design of your Poster! Just because you are restricted to black, white and gray does not mean that you can't be extremely creative with the look of your piece. When you are done with your cover and your ticket, save them as JPEGs and call them: lastname_ART_EVENT_POSTER.jpg and lastname_ART_EVENT_TICKET.jpg put them into the DROPBOX. YOU MUST ALSO PRINT YOUR POSTER and TICKET by 4:00 on the 27th of March, so that the Drama class can select and print the winning poster and ticket by the end of the day on the 29th. The winning posters will be posted around town in small format and will be advertised in large poster format here in the school.
