About the Event:

This course is designed to accelerate your skill level into the “I didn’t know I could do that!” realm. You will be challenged to focus and actively problem-solve your technique alongside dealing with simple design problems in an intensive, easy to understand environment. From gathering to bubble set-up and finishing, the goal is to acquire an effortless “less is more” approach with consistency and quick output as a priority. 

Skill-building drills, teamwork, drawing, collaboration and hard work will reinforce methods employed. At the same time, through research, discussion and practice, students will solve design problems with a critical eye and make adjustments with newly acquired hand skill. This course is perfect for those that are looking to advance their hand skill, produce more in less time and have a strong interest in design.
