Animated Worlds: The Art of Animation
Learn how your favorite cartoons get made and how to make your own eye-catching animated gifs! Starting with a series of projects exploring the principles of motion, students will learn different animation techniques such as flipbooks, hand-drawn animation, stop-motion, and cut-outs. As a final project, students will make a short animated film with sound.
This hands-on, project-based course will ask students to identify ways to improve their world and to build marketable design solutions or services. By creating a product and developing a business and marketing plan, students will learn how entrepreneurs transform an idea into a business.
Fashion & Textile Design
Discover your individual identity through fashion, while learning about the design process from concept to a collection. In this class, students explore various hands-on techniques such as fashion illustration, hand embroidery and sewing techniques, and designing repurposed clothes. The cycle of fashion and textile design and its production will be investigated while considering the effect it has on the community.
Graphic Design as Activism
Use the tools and techniques of graphic design to amplify your voice and build relationships in your neighborhood, your block or your street around issues that matter. In this class, students will design and create a variety of handmade and digital artifacts such as posters, signs, sidewalk art, buttons, or flyers.
