2015 Graphic Design Summer Camp

Are you interested in:
-business, marketing, art, or entrepreneurship?
-gaining an edge when applying to internships in the future?
-adding skills to your resume or college application?
-learning fun, new skills?

In this one-week course, students will learn the basics of graphic design as well as how to use Adobe Illustrator. Why learn graphic design? Learning graphic design opens up doors for future opportunities in many industries, including technology and business. Just from my own personal experience, the instructor Joyce was able to obtain a marketing internship at a medical software company in high school because her experience in graphic design translated to creating marketing collateral such as powerpoints and e-books. While students will learn the basic tools to use these programs, they will also learn how to apply this knowledge to create various print and web media. By the end of the week, students will have a mini portfolio of design projects!
