learning graphic design

I have finished my first curriculum – Introduction to Graphic Design. It took me some time to complete and while it is offered as an elective program on the membership site SchoolhouseTeachers.com, I have finally finished preparations and now have it posted on my business site, Sweet Bee Pixels, as well as on this site. If you or your children are interested in learning graphic design, this is the perfect course.
