Beginning Object Design

Class Description

Students will be immersed in the world of object design. Hands-on studio work will include material exploration, drawing, and making concept models. Through three distinct design projects, students will experiment with textile design, lighting design, and furniture design. In each project, we will explore the diverse cultural history of design as well as contemporary culture and emerging technology.

The final week of the program focuses on how to present our work and mount an exhibition, culminating in a gallery event and celebration on July 31st. Students, parents, friends and family are invited to tour the gallery exhibition and college fair.


Back to class safely – While we do hope to continue our in-person learning, please note that this learning experience may need to evolve to an online or hybrid learning platform based on the safety regulations and recommendations by the city and state.
