What is design? It is creative problem solving seen all around us! It has real-world functions and constraints — it plays a part in everything we do.
This course will introduce you to the world of design. You’ll start looking at the world around you with a more critical eye to context, sustainability, and usability. Each class presents design in context ~ a design element like composition, style, or type of design.
In class, we will explore many types of design including architecture, spacial design, product design, and communication / graphic design.
Design is about doing! So, we will begin with a small project, build on it, and refine it, while learning about various aspects of design along the way.
Note to parents:
- We will talk about design tools, but we will only introduce the most basic ones as software can be expensive.
