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.
