Camp Info| Eligibility | TuitionFaculty | Application

Photography, jewelry, books, animation, fashion and more—all are designed and all of these creative avenues are yours to be explored this summer at Loyola.

Loyola’s Summer Design Camp is a chance for high school students to discover the different areas of design. But, whatever one’s goal in life—from accountant to zoologist —this program is a fun, creative, hands-on experience that will get you thinking and creating.

Students will be challenged to explore a variety of methods and media, while engaging in a process that is collaborative, thought-provoking, and imaginative to solve problems. “Thought into action” is one of the guiding principles of our camp experience.

Students have the opportunity to take classes where they can use the 3d printer, create animation, design a video game, or learn the basics of fashion design. Participants will leave with an understanding of the links between their knowledge and skills and how they can apply those to help understand and create the world they live in.

Last Day to Sign up for Design Camp is May 26, 2017. No refunds after May 23, 2017.

1. Photo Design (Faculty: Leah Floyd) Monroe 511
Photo Design is a class that focuses on becoming confident using a digital camera to produce high quality digital images. Through fun class exercises and innovative, fresh projects by the end of the week students will understand the in and outs of their cameras (setting the aperture, shutter speed, ISO, etc). Photoshop tutorials will be included within this course as a tool for editing your images. Photo Design is an introductory digital imaging class that assumes no prior knowledge of photography.

2. Animation Design (Faculty: Noel Anderson) Monroe 512
Motion graphics is the marriage of design and animation. Good design builds environments and characters, while well designed motion brings them to life. The Design + Animation course introduces students to the fundamentals of visual and motion design. Students will create images in Adobe Photoshop that they will animate in After Effects to tell the story that lives within the world of their creation.

6. Jewelry Design (Faculty Rachel Adamiak ): Classroom Wood shop
This class will teach basic metalsmithing and jewelry making skills. Students will use both metal and found objects in their designs. We will push ourselves and open our minds to what jewelry and adornment can be. This will be a fast paced & fun class that will require creativity and some real concentration. All levels, no prior metals experience needed.

7. Writing + Design (Faculty: Daniela Marx & Robert Bell) Classroom Monroe 539
We’ve all read and enjoy comics and graphic novels. However, what happens when we rethink what visuals are used to convey the story. In “Not a Graphic Novel,” students will write a short story, and then convey that narrative in in a non-traditional way. Students will then learn how to reproduce this "not a graphic novel” on the RISO printer and make several copies of their unique text to take home.
