Andrew Shalat

Sessions College is excited to announce the appointment of Andrew Shalat as Department Head for the Graphic Design Degree program.

Familiar to many students during his six years of teaching at Sessions, Andrew is a multi-talented author, designer/illustrator, educator, and Mac expert who has taught everything from video production to illustration and graphic design at Sessions. Since 2008 he has served as Department Head of Digital Arts (certificate programs), contributing his considerable energy and insight to course development and curriculum strategy.

We’re confident that Andrew will make a considerable mark as a leader of the Graphic Design Associate Degree program. As he commented: “Design is taking something from the state in which you find it, and moving it to a preferred state. That something could be an idea, a message, a color, or a shape… And the degree to which you are aware of that as an act of design is also the degree to which you can call yourself a designer out loud.”

Please join us in congratulating him on this new role. We would also like to thank outgoing Department Head Joss Parsey for her awesome teaching over the last four years at Sessions. Her incredibly responsive and helpful but pointed critiques will be missed by staff and students alike and we wish Joss well with her future endeavors.
