In the first week, students will be introduced to essential concepts in graphic design. Type, color, form, hierarchy, and concept will be discussed in detail, with students designing projects, both by hand and on the computer, with these concepts in mind. By the end of the first week, students will have multiple projects completed, including posters, hand-drawn typography, and illustrations. Students will also receive instruction in the basics of the Adobe Creative Suite. For the second week, it's all about building a three-dimensional design project. Each student is given the very same object. In previous summers, the objects have been skateboards, chairs, and guitars. Each student is also given a word that represents a concept, movement or idea. The students then transform their objects into a 3D sculptural design piece that represents their word. It's a lot of work, but the results are always fun and really exciting! These pieces are displayed in the End of Program Exhibition. In the third week, students explore ways of using form and color to create powerful visual communication. Students experiment with handmade and digital techniques, including collage, drawing, stenciling, and typesetting, in the design of original posters, t-shirts, and totebags. Our goal is to design and produce engaging and memorable visual communication products. We transform a classroom and computer lab into a design and production studio. Each student experiences a complete creative process, from conceptual development, through design, to final production. Please note: Pre-College courses may include the use of nude models. Course curriculum and faculty are subject to change.
