High School Students Can Learn Design Secrets from Kent State ProfessorsPosted April 23, 2012
Jillian Coorey and Gretchen Rinnert, both assistant professors in the School of Visual Communication Design at Kent State University, will kick off the school’s first-ever, week-long summer creative camp called Inspire.
Held July 23-27 at Kent State’s School of Visual Communication Design, the camp will give students an overview of graphic design disciplines such as 2-D print, 3-D print, image-making, motion and interaction. Covering a different discipline each day, Coorey says each session will be fresh and exciting for the students.
The day camp is for high school students who have completed their freshman year through incoming college freshman, who are between the ages of 14 and 19 and have an interest in design, photography, illustration and creative thinking. There is no requirement of previous experience, transcripts or a portfolio to attend this program. Camp attendees will be introduced to the practice of design, the profession and creative problem-solving.
Coorey and Rinnert have high hopes for the success of the program. With only a handful of similar design camps in the country and nothing similar in the area, the directors hope this camp will become an annual event, eventually turning into an overnight camp with multiple sessions in order to reach out to more than just the local community.
