Designed Inventions Camp:10-13

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. This camp also serves as an introduction to the Adobe Creative Suite software, using programs such as Illustrator and/or Photoshop. Students learn firsthand from contemporary design while visiting the vast collections of the Art Institute of Chicago and observing examples of design in the urban environment of downtown Chicago.
