The Explore Design! program is an exciting summer session for RI youth ages 14 to 18. Introductions to graphic design, industrial design and architecture are the focus of this six-week summer camp!

For a 6-week design discovery program!

Ever wondered how graphic designers create new logos for companies? How architects shape spaces? Or how industrial designers improve the products we use every day to make our lives easier?

In this exciting new summer opportunity, we’ll explore the skills involved in beginning a career in graphic design, industrial + product design, and architectural design. You’ll work with experienced designers to tackle real-world design projects, while learning the basics of design software, including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and SketchUp Pro. Fun weekly field trips and visits from practicing professionals will help you decide if a design career is right for you. You’ll come away with a ton of new skills and a digital portfolio that showcases your work.

Explore Design! is open to all RI youth ages 14 to 18. Participants who meet our attendance requirements will receive pay stipends. No previous design or software skills are necessary. We’ll teach you everything you need to know!
