In this course, students should learn more advanced techniques for working with paths, how to manipulate Bezier curves, how to use transparency and opacity masks, graphic styles, brush effects, symbols, pattern creation, and gradient mesh. Students should also learn how to use advanced transformation tools, envelopes, filters, effects, and graphic styles to produce professional-level illustrations and web graphics. Advanced colour, 3D effects, type effects and blending techniques to create isometric views for developing logos, icons, and technical drawings will be discussed. In addition, students will look at managing colour settings, print specifications, graphic file formats, pre-press production and high-resolution printing.

The woodworking shops are dangerous because they are supported by technicians with no formal training, no real life furniture construction experience and only a vague idea woodworkings’ potential or of what wood working actually is. The student techs are dangerous because they think they know what they are doing. The student monitors should only work to keep the shop clean. Studio management should learn what PM2.5 and PM10 are. Furniture design’s professor came to school a day early and left a day late to insure their project direction and and safety of their students. Router bits and cnc cutters regularly while spinning at 18000 +/- rpm fell out of the machine. The wood shop techs do not even have the base training to know nor made the effort to know that collets need to be replaced periodically. Consequently the students suffer thanks to OCADU’s nepotistic process of hiring ex-students as lead technicians, recent students even students from other curriculums as student techs and the least useful and the potentially dangerous are the student monitors who seem to thinks they are qualified to proffer advice. Machine cutters and hand tools were constantly dull, a professor would have had to ask for the machines’ dull cutters to be replaced. Hand sharping of hand tools is not a skill the techs possessed nor do they know how to use our respect traditional hand tools. Stationary grinders for rough sharpening were positioned beside the wood lathes. Dust from the lathes, nearby sanders and grinder sparks are a fire hazard.
Close the woods shops until OCADU hires actual woodworkers with 5 plus years of experience, (not cabinetmakers) who are red seal certified. Figure out PM2.5 and PM10 are. The time our prof gave to the students to be sure they were safe and succeeded put him at a minimum wage level.
