Students are guided deep into the various design disciplines where they can use their own tools and resources.
The Junior Summer Course in Global Design is meant for young people to discover different fields of design (product, interior, graphic) and explore creative processes linked to these disciplines.
The programme fosters motivation and self-knowledge to encourage each student to leverage the experience they have built up in their academic and private lives. It provides a safe place in which to create new bonds and share ideas, favouring observation, investigation, conceptual association, logic and communication.
Students are guided deep into the various design disciplines where they can use their own tools and resources. They will also explore new techniques and languages from a global perspective: poetry, visual arts, plastic arts, sculpture, theatre and music. Every exercise concludes with one individual project and one group assignment.
The course is intended to boost motivation, confidence and self-knowledge, so that the students incorporate their experiences into their own academic path and personal life and gain a better understanding of how designers in different areas think and work.
The syllabus has been conceived to create a space where students can establish bonds and share their own distinctive features. Technical knowledge and tools are provided so that the students can develop their own individual ideas and know how to express them.
The design process is laid out so that they can understand how important observation, investigation, concept association, logic and communication are to each discipline.
The programme is designed to immerse the students in the different design disciplines by exploring their specific tools and resources. 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.
Young students between 15 and 18 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.
