Summer Design Course for High School Students in NYC
Students in the Graphic Design Summer Camp are taught the most powerful tools in graphic design: Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop.
The first section of the camp covers Adobe Photoshop. Students explore topics such as retouching photos, combining images, preparing graphics for the web, and more.
The next section covers InDesign comprehensively and includes creating page layouts with text, graphics, and multiple pages. Our young designers learn to style text, import photos + graphics, define/use colors, add multiple pages, and thread text frames (just to name a few skills.)
Lastly, students begin their mastery of Illustrator and create numerous graphics throughout the course. Expert instructors guide students through the use of standard drawing tools, the Pen tool, Type, Compound Paths, Effects, Layers, Masks, Patterns, Blends, and Colors.
Throughout this training, students work on a wide variety of projects to build a dynamic portfolio of work that any professional would be proud to claim as their own!
You may attend this training virtually (online) at the scheduled time the course is offered (New York, Eastern Time).
How does attending “live online” work?
Students can attend this training remotely through screen sharing software (we use Zoom).
Participants can hear the instruction, ask questions, and even share their screen with the instructor.
For audio you can use your computer’s microphone/speakers or call a phone number that we’ll provide.
Classes are activity-based and taught by a live instructor, so we strongly encourage students who are local to the area to attend in person!
Learn, then Practice Teaching Method
Aspiring designers create professional-level work. First by watching a short instructor demo, then by practicing through step-by-step exercises included in our custom workbook.
