Course description

Graphic Design for 13 - 16 year olds will explore the world of visual communication as you unravel the possibilities of graphic design. You'll leave with a body of design work and new-found skills that can be put towards building a design portfolio.

Through a series of fun and engaging workshops, you will experiment with a range of hands on materials and processes.

You will develop your drawing, push your printmaking, tinker with your typography and focus on your photography. With this array of materials, you will let your imagination run free and find new ways of expressing and communicating your ideas.

We'll encourage you to develop your ideas through brainstorming and visual research, with an off-site visit to feed your inspiration.
