Thinking Design: Creating Memorable Images with Duane Preble and Philippe Gross

August 27, 2013 - September 3, 2013
Mānoa Campus, Krauss 12 Add to Calendar

Explore the language of visual design and its relationship to the creative mind. In addition to theory, participants have hands-on experience through drawing, design, and photography. Drawing, design, and photography are fundamental to sharpening one's observational abilities, elevating design skills, and heightening visual communication. Focused experience helps you see beyond habitual seeing and strengthens visual expression in all media. No prior experience in drawing or photography needed.

Prerequisites: bring a camera or cell phone camera, a note book/sketchbook with blank paper, and a Design Ebony jet black extra smooth pencil (#14420)

Tuesdays, August 27 and September 3 • 6:30-9pm
