Teen Studio Intensive: Graphic Design and Illustration (Summer 2013)
Teen Studio Intensives
Week-long Teen Studio Intensives are designed to give high school students ages 16-18 a chance to explore a college-like curriculum in rigorous sessions. Each section introduces topics and processes that MCAD students study while pursuing their undergraduate degrees. Students receive one college credit for successfully completing both classes in a section.
In this week-long Intensive, high school students will explore the majors of graphic design and illustration. Graphic design and illustration are used in tandem to convey concepts and communicate ideas. Students who excel in both areas of study are some of the most sought-after in the design world. Using traditional methods along with the latest software, teens will get the chance to work on real-world projects similar to those given to designers and illustrators today. Participants will also work hands-on to create work that will add depth and variety to their portfolios. / Drawing skills recommended. Experience with the Adobe Creative Suite is helpful, but not required. / Facilities fee of $40 and materials fee of $30 in addition to class tuition. / Open to students ages 16-18 at the start of the class.
