ABOUT ME

Professor Victoria Martin

PALM BEACH STATE COLLEGE

To be successful in any  given career you need to think critically and be curious.  Students need to learn how to problem solve. They need the opportunity to discover for themselves and practice their skills in authentic situations., which is why I insist my students enter a lot of contests. Since I teach graphic design and fine art courses I make a strong effort to inform students what to expect from clients, to give them real world projects and develop a curriculum around student interests while covering the basics of design fundamentals.
