Open Studio Advanced Design

Every designer hits a point where they need to do something to shake up their practice a bit, whether its as simple as making a new project outside of their day job or as grand as examining and reworking their creative process. But it can be hard to figure out what to do next especially without external feedback and milestones.

In this class, you’ll work with an experienced design educator to propose a project based on your needs, design a plan for working on it, and meet weekly for group critiques and 1-on-1 meetings. MCAD’s amazing print facilities (including banner printing, bindery, and Risograph printing at affordable prices) and computer labs will help you make your project a reality and guest lecturers will bring their unique viewpoints to the classroom for intimate conversations on design, working, and process. / Open to students ages 18 and above. / View complete policies.

Prerequisites: Students should have at least 2 years professional experience or a degree/certificate in design.

What to bring: Pen or pencil; notebook or sketchbook.
