Commercial Illustration COMMERCIAL ILLUSTRATION CERTIFICATE PROGRAM (PART-TIME) The Commercial Illustration Certificate is an extensive program aimed at individuals who wish to pursue a career in commercial illustration, or who wish to update their illustration skills. The program consists of 18 courses that include traditional art training – from Life Drawing and Media Techniques to Drawing for Illustration – as well as working with digital applications like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. This program explores stylistic strategies for commercial illustrators as well as critical business issues such as pricing, contracts, and self-promotion. Students will produce a commercially viable portfolio of work as their graduation project. The emphasis of this program is on developing a personal style and voice, along with honing skills that enable individuals to accomplish traditional and digital storyboarding, advertising, and editorial illustration. Instructors in the program are working illustration professionals with significant teaching experience in the applied arts who bring the highest degree of industry experience and award-winning credentials to the program. Students will work on projects that emulate real industry situations and learn through a mentorship-style of instruction that mimics the art director-illustrator relationship in the real world.

Admission See website for more details.

Certificate Requirements Upon completion of the 18 required courses in the Commercial Illustration Program, students may apply for certification. This process is free of charge and involves sending the student’s final portfolio to a panel of top industry illustrators and client representatives. When the majority of the panel agree that the portfolio is commercially viable, the student will receive certification. We recommend that the student plan for six terms to complete the program before applying for a certificate.

GREECE THROUGH THE AGES TOUR

“This was a great trip. We covered a lot of ground in a relatively short time, possible because of the well organized tour itinerary and advanced planning. The variety of places we visited and the different activities provided the right balance to experience such an amazing country.”

May 3 - 17, 2014 | Cost: $3,325 Explore 4,000 years of Greek history and culture, including “must see” sites such as the Akropolis, the volcanic island of Santorini, the Oracle of Apollo at Delphi, and the ancient theatre at Epidauros. In addition, you will experience Greece as few visitors do – in the charming 19th century town of Nauplion, night life in Athens, and a stay in the traditional Greek village of Kyparissi on the Aegean Sea. There will be a special visit to Pavlopetri, the world’s oldest underwater town, and an optional tour of Crete (including the original Labyrinth). Langara instructor and program leader, Peter Prontzos, who has led two other tours to Greece, will share his knowledge of Greek history, culture, politics, and philosophy.

NEW VIVA MEXICO TOUR: COLONIAL CITIES & MAYAN RUINS March 26 - April 7, 2014 | Cost: $3,799 Mexico is much more than Cancun and Spring Break; it’s a country with a wealth of stunning historical and cultural sites of world-class importance, including many on the UNESCO World Heritage list. This program will go beyond the beach and introduce the country’s rich history, its incredible wealth of culture, its natural wonders, and its friendly and welcoming people. Visit the small colonial cities of Guanajuato, a colourful jewel made wealthy by silver; Dolores Hidalgo, cradle of Mexican Independence; San Miguel de Allende; and the frescoed sanctuary of Atotonilco, considered the “Sistine Chapel” of Latin America. Explore the Yucatan, and visit Merida, colonial capital of art, music, and dance. Tour haciendas, caves, and cenotes; marvel at the Mayan ruins of Uxmal and Chichen Itza; and the lesser-known sites of the Puuc Route, Ek Balam, and Coba. Experience the Caribbean hot spots of Tulum and Playa del Carmen. Join instructor Lisa MacLean on this cultural tour.

There’s plenty of time for visiting the museums and enjoying the tapas. Catalonia has amazing medieval towns like Rupit where we’ll spend a couple of days. Then it’s on to the Costa Brava where we photograph the old village of Pals and the charming villages in the rocky coves of this beautiful coast. As you enjoy the history, culture, and ambiance of Catalonia, learn to use your camera more effectively as well as learning and practising better use of light and composition. Bring home beautiful photos and be more confident with your photography for your next trip.

LEAP - Langara English for Academic Purposes Academic Preparation (LEAP 3 - LEAP 8) The content for the intermediate to advanced levels of the LEAP Program is drawn from a wide range of academic disciplines. Each week students practice all of their core language skills in the context of an academic subject. The level of critical thinking skills and the complexity of academic strategies increases as students progress through the program.

An Integrated Approach To Learning Graphic model of a one-week LEAP learning unit

Speaking of LEAP My LEAP Experience! In the LEAP Program, I was constantly being challenged. The LEAP Program not only improved my English, but also taught me the importance of critical thinking and the knowledge that is necessary to practice it. Completing this program gave me a sense of confidence that I needed as a young international student. My ACADEMIC Courses! After graduating from LEAP in 2008, I studied in the University Transfer program at Langara. I then transferred to York University where I’m now doing a double major in Human Rights and Equity Studies, and Political Science. I am taking a year-off from school and starting an internship program at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Tokyo. I am very excited and looking forward to what this will lead to in the future. My advice for you is to stay openminded. Don’t limit yourself, because the world is your classroom.

LEAP provides a unique learning experience for students by: • Facilitating development of language and academic skills • Assisting students to become successful independent learners • Encouraging student integration into the Langara College academic and social community • Promoting academic excellence

LEAP instructors have degrees specializing in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) and are carefully selected for their experience in teaching English, cross-cultural awareness, and commitment to helping students achieve academic success.

Application Requirements Application forms are available from the Langara Continuing Studies office. All students must submit a program application package and fees before the program start date. Students must register in person.

ESL + 2 + 2: Your Pathway to Success Student Testimonials

Langara’s ESL programming uses an integrated approach to language learning. Rather than teach skills in isolation we use a holistic methodology, combining speaking, listening, reading, and writing, and focusing on a variety of relevant and interesting topics. Using a content-based curriculum, we engage students in activities that require the use of a variety of strategies to encourage authentic communication. This creates a dynamic, student-centred learning environment in which students acquire language in a natural and meaningful way. Gradually, students learn to approach classroom content the same way as students whose first language is English.

Organic Landscape Management Organic landscape management is the design, installation, and maintenance of landscapes to promote environmental health and is based on the understanding that all organisms in nature are interdependent. In order to have healthy plants, we must nurture the health of their entire ecosystem. Sustainable landscapes clean the air and water, restore habitats, and can actively contribute to the development of healthy communities. These courses suit those in the landscape and horticultural trades seeking to upgrade skills, or individuals interested in working as a professional landscape/garden designer. Note: These courses partially satisfy the requirements for the Gaia College Diploma in Organic Landcare.
