As a follow-up to our Design in Our Everyday Lives, Big and Small course, this course will focus on one design project in a charrette-style class where participants discuss various aspects of student design. This is how true design studios work!
This 8-week course will have the students go through each step of a project. Design is a thoughtful, iterative process and this is what the kids will explore while bringing their ideas to life. Expect homework, but fun work!
This class is for students who love design and are willing to explore it further. Let’s explore the process of design and the world of ideas!
Note to parents:
- Ultimately, design is about doing. Students will design at home and discuss during the class. Students will present their work, catalog feedback, and decide the next steps in design refinement. They will also get to comment and ask questions about other students’ works. Student interaction will depend on the level of student participation.
- We will talk about design tools, but we will only introduce the most basic ones as software can be expensive.
- Check out these great ideas and how to get started with design:
