Hello new and returning students! I’m happy to be back and looking forward to all of our classes this semester.

Art and Design current class blogs at Palm Beach State College – FALL 2020

If you are a current student, please refer to these sites for our calendar as well as visual references, inspirational links, design tools and most importantly: assignments, requirements and deadlines!

Welcome to Art + Design at Palm Beach State College!
I will be updating this blog with inspiring design posts at least once a week – otherwise, see your class blog for detailed schedules, assignments and tutorials. Welcome to Design at Palm Beach State College! If you are looking for a class syllabus, you can find it on my faculty home page.

The following classes have their own class blog, in addition to this umbrella main blog, to stay posted with: Illustrator 2 and Design Fundamentals.  Stay tuned for more information as the new semester settles in.

VIRTUAL CLASS UPDATE: everything will be here on your class website for the entire course of FALL 2020. You will work at a self pace, having deadlines posted here, critiques here on “Critique Hub”and I will have virtual office hours as well for technical assistance.

Email me with any questions you might have about classes, design, anything at all!

Best, Professor Hopkins


Thank you.

Hi students,

We. made. it. 😉 

All four design classes of mine have turned in your last projects. I’m proud of you and the work you produced. I hope you are!

Thank you for participating in our online critiques, and for adapting to all of our changes. A gentle reminder to complete your course evaluation, as it makes quite a difference to me.

Please keep me posted on you, don’t hesitate to reach out anytime. Let me know if you have any questions.

Stay safe and I hope to see you all in the fall semester. Best – Prof. Hopkins

How are we?

Hi students,

We are in the home stretch.. all classes have only one project left to turn in. I wanted to say how proud I am of all of you for your graceful transition to online learning and online critiquing. While this obviously isn’t as wonderful as seeing you in person, I can hear your sophisticated voices and helpful suggestions through your comments on Critique Hub. I can also see your design growth, despite not being able to help you in the classroom setting. I know for some of you, working “on your own” has been difficult, and you have excelled despite all. I have enjoyed watching your design skills -technical and conceptual – grow this semester and have enjoyed getting to know you, for the first time or 3rd semester!

Id like to ask you to take a minute to complete your Course Evaluation. This feedback is really important to me, and I value your anonymous responses greatly.

I can’t wait to see your last project! And then you will be DONE with this semester.
