Camp Info| Eligibility | TuitionFaculty | Application

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 can choose from two experiences:

A. Graphic Design Experience will explore typography, visual narrative, illustration, photography and motion design. 

B. Interactive Design Experience will explore visual narrative, coding, 3d printing, motion and game design.

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.

No refunds after May 25, 2018.

Week 1: June 19-23 and/or Week 2: June 25-29
 
A. Graphic Design Experience 

1. Visual Narrative (Faculty: TBD)
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.

2. Typography (Faculty:TBD )

3. Photo Design (Faculty: Leah Floyd)
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 and learn how to use photoshop! 

4. Illustration Design (Faculty: Hannah Rhodes) Classroom Monroe 509+511
An introduction to illustration and the creative design industry. Learn how to explain ideas, communicate messages and tell stories through visual means, and discover how to turn a passion for design into a career path.

5. Motion 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.

 

B. Interactive Design Experience

1. Visual Narrative (Faculty: TBD)
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.

2. 3d printing (Faculty: John Seefeldt): Classroom Monroe 151
This course will cover the design and fabrication of functional and sculptural 3d objects. Students will learn to use professional 3D modeling software and see their designs come to life on the 3D printers.

3. Creative Coding (Faculty: Sean Eib): Monroe 508
Creative coding will teach the fundamentals of coding through the use of the Swift programming language and Xcode to create basic iOS apps. These coding languages are free and easy to learn. We will go into basic programming and then use guided lessons to create a app.

4. Motion 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.

5. Game Design (Faculty: John Seefeldt):
Classroom Monroe 151This course is an introduction to the conceptual and technical possibilities of making games. It is designed to help develop fundamental skills and allow even greater opportunities for individual expression through the use of games and interactive media.
