Guys, does classical art have much to do with graphical design? Because I've just spent the last four hours learning about Salvador Dali in Graphics class. He's awesome n' all, but isn't Graphic Design about DESIGNING GRAPHICS DESU~?

Having spent 2 years studying it and being in a class full of Graphics & Art, I'll give answering your question a shot:
[Art Knowledge Activated...]
Graphics Design can't simply be explained by re-arranging those words and it's not simply JUST about "designing graphics". Graphics Design & Art are pretty much the same thing in that they're both based on four main aspects of Design: Layout, Presentation, Style & Mode.
Graphcs Design uses these four aspects along with ideas and works of "art" to convey and/or communite a message or factor of its entire construction and detail. To put it in another sense, Graphics Design is an extension of the whole idea and basis behind art and using sources from such artists like Salvador Dali (whom you studied), it helps to understand and create ideas in order to represent and communite a message, feeling or subject as well as presenting it on a particular medium.
Studying art helps in Graphics Design because it's like the base for the actual message in the deisgn.
Hope that helps...although I have a feeling I've just confused you more than ever now.
