What influence do advertisements have on you and the people around you? Everyday we are bombarded with advertising in many forms: posters; billboards; packaging; moving images; etc. Is this a good thing? In this class we will explore the world of advertising and learn how to describe, explain, and analyse the narrative and stylistic aspects of a range of advertisements. Expect to be actively involved in whole class, small group, and individual tasks and projects.
