|Summer Workshops | 2013 HIGH SCHOOL WORKSHOP|
Design Innovation Workshop
Dates: Wednesday-Friday, 5-7, 2013
Eligibility: Open to high school students who will be sophomores, juniors or seniors in fall 2013 as well as spring 2013 graduates
Explore the many possibilities of a future in art and design in this two-and-a-half-day workshop, led by faculty members from Iowa State University's College of Design at three locations: on the Iowa State campus in Ames, at ISU Design West in Sioux City and at Prairie Lakes Area Education Agency in Storm Lake.
Through a series of activities, students interact with local artists and designers, explore educational and professional paths in art and design, and practice some design of their own through a series of hands-on exercises modeled after the ways in which designers work. Sessions explore a range of art and design disciplines, including studio art, graphic design, interior design, architecture, landscape architecture, industrial design and urban planning.
In addition to introducing these disciplines and career paths, the hands-on projects expose students to design studio culture; typical design processes that address conceptual, aesthetic, environmental and functional issues; independent critical thinking skills; professional etiquette; and collaborative design work. The workshop culminates in a public exhibit, designed by student participants, featuring the work produced during the two-day event.
Specific activities include tours of offices and studios, question-and-answer sessions with practitioners and educators, site research in Ames, Sioux City or Storm Lake, two- and three-dimensional design explorations, and a final exhibit of student work with response from local art and design professionals.
