Now that the official year has ended, the nerves brought on by exams and the last-minute handing in of papers, the personal drive to get good grades and the uncertainty of what to study next year have all been left behind. Summer is here and although some people will take private classes, consolidate their knowledge or go on holiday, we propose that you take a two week break and join the Global Design Junior Course.

The Summer Course in Global Design Junior enables students to discover the different areas of design: product design, interior design, fashion design and graphic design. It gives them an opportunity to explore the creative processes linked to these disciplines so to discover the potential within and activate their radars in the world of creation. 

This course is in keeping with IED Barcelona’s multicultural approach, where the aim is to seek knowledge and pursue ideas beyond each specific area so that the students can have a deeper understanding of the different areas of design and start to trace out their academic and personal careers.

Objetives

The course is intended to boost motivation, confidence and self-knowledge, so each student incorporates the experiences they learn into their own academic path and personal life, and so they gain a better understanding of the way different designers think and work depending on their field of action.

The syllabus is conceived to build up a space where each one of them can create bonds and share their distinctive features. Students are also provided with enough technical knowledge to develop their own ideas, on the basis of a design process which highlights the importance of observing, researching, associating ideas, applying logic and communicating, no matter the discipline they have chosen.

Methodology

The course is conceived as an immersion into the different disciplines of design, using tools and resources that belong specifically to each one of them. Moreover, students will explore several techniques and languages from a global perspective involving poetry, visual art, plastic art, sculpture, theatre and music.

All exercises are rounded off by putting experience into practice; on the last day, the group is asked to jointly create a piece that combines tools and knowledge in design and art. 

Target

Young students between 15 and 17 years old who are considering how to further their academic education and have an interest in the different design disciplines.

It is aimed towards young people who are not developing their creative or artistic potential and wish to explore their skills.

Also for students who are struggling academically or lacking motivation, who need to find themselves and learn how to get organised and enjoy learning.
