Course Description:

This is an 8 week intensive design and concepting course, with a focus on quick ideation, modeling, and realization of ideas using a fluid combination of sketching, painting, modeling, and rendering. Students will be provided with a digitizing tablet and use these advanced techniques to design and develop several pieces that they can use in their portfolio afterwards. To join the class, students will need to submit an entry to be judged by the course instructors in a contest. The winners will be selected to attend the course.
