Once I found out that Mission offered online classes, I jumped at the chance and took courses in Photoshop, Illustrator, entry-level Graphic Design, and Photography, until there were no more online classes I could take. The positive energy and supportive environment I've experienced from fellow Graphic Design students is amazing.
