Overview

Pre-College Design introduces students to the discipline of Design, provides a foundation of skills, and gives a clear idea of what to expect from a college-level accredited program.

 

Design has never been in greater demand than it is now. Businesses, government, and local communities are turning to designers for innovation and problem solving which has created new roles for designers in every sector of the marketplace. Pre-College Design students will have the opportunity to attend classes taught by full-time faculty where they are given a primer on the design principles and practices that are the cornerstones of the undergraduate School of Design program.

Modeled after the freshman year experience, sessions will consist of studio learning, lectures, critiques, field trips to museums, workspaces, and community spaces, as well as guided work sessions with faculty. Students will be assigned their own personal studio space, providing them with their first foray into “studio life.” By the end of the program, participants will have portfolio pieces that have been critiqued by School of Design faculty. There will also be a showcase that will feature all of the work students completed during the program, for fellow classmates, faculty and parents to see.
