Are you creative but not sure how that translates into a career? Love to think up new ideas and bring them into being? Always talking about how the things you use and own could be better? Maybe you should be a designer!
If youâ€™re interested in a design career, join us this summer for Teen Jam Summer Studio. Weâ€™ll be going on a week of field trips to different design studios in Atlanta. On these trips, youâ€™ll talk to designers about their education and career path, youâ€™ll learn about their work, try your hand at some design projects, and learn how to put together a portfolio. Itâ€™s a great way to get the inside view from designers who are doing what they love.
Each day after visiting a studio, weâ€™ll talk about what we learned and explore a design skill like sketching, portfolio building, and prototyping.
From graphic design to architecture, youâ€™ll learn how to turn your creative awesomeness into a career.
