Someone once said that creativity is the ability to see what is right before our very eyes. It is a feat of association.
We invite you to take a creative leap this summer and learn to think on your feet. Enhance your portfolio by looking at the world from a new perspective. Course content = creative problem solving. The only thing you’ve got to lose = your preconceptions. The only things we really need = your undivided attention and 100% participation. The one thing you will be sure to get = a new understanding of the creative process.
This class will cover the fundamental elements and essential principles of creative problem solving, drawing, and design. The primary goal is to enhance your prospects for building a better portfolio by strengthening you as a creative individual.
Daily faculty demos and a wide variety of student projects will help you gain a greater understanding of design as a creative process. Your time will be spent exploring and creating work in areas such as life drawing, landscape studies, and figurative work. You will be exposed to many new techniques and creative processes throughout various departments at CIA and at various University Circle locations. Throughout the session we will have group critiques to discuss creative possibilities and unique solutions to design problems.
Warning = this is not a class for those who wish to remain oblivious.
