Weekend Workshops are Here!

High School Graphic Design Workshop
Saturday, September 22nd // 10am – 4pm

In this collaborative workshop, students will focus on graphic design principles including rapid prototyping, typographic and image making, design dialogue, and collaboration. What starts as an individual project will transform through collaboration. The result will be designed artifacts that no individual could have created alone. Fun, improvisational, and fast-paced, this workshop is sure to keep the attention of even the most apprehensive creative.
