Styles and trends in graphic design change a lot and graphic designers need to be open-minded and stay current with the newest technology and techniques.
Plus, having additional or advanced skills can make you more valuable as a graphic designer, whether as a contract or full-time laborer.
Several continuing education programs in graphic design are designed for working adults. Many colleges and universities offer graphic design-related programs on accelerated schedules, with evening and weekend class times.
And several graphic design courses are offered online. While this type of education may not be practical for hands-on applications like drawing or painting, it can be ideal for lecture or concept-oriented graphic design classes such as those in advertising, business, digital imaging, marketing, or web design.
