Transform everyday obstacles and opportunities into new objects, ideas, and products! Did you know that the trampoline, magnetic locker wallpaper, popsicles, T-Pak, and Algae Mobile were all invented by kids? In this exciting course, students use the process of invention to explore the fundamental principles of design, using both traditional and digital methods. From sketches and paper mock-ups to 3D modeling and package design, students experience the design process in the same way professional designers do. Students learn firsthand from contemporary design while virtually visiting the vast collections of the Art Institute of Chicago.
