“The goal of a designer is to listen, observe, understand, sympathize, empathize, synthesize,

and glean insights that enable him or her to ‘make the invisible visible.”  ~ Hillman Curtis

  • ​​​​​​​​​​Design is part of every aspect of our lives, and has the power to improve human life standards drastically.

  • Our Design courses offer students opportunities to investigate, explore, evaluate, invent, decode, develop, and visually and purposefully communicate ideas and experiences within a wide variety of systems, processes and environments.

  • Students build visual literacy by designing visual solutions to pressing human needs and problems problems that can be a physical or virtual means for providing an audience with an experience that
    can take place in an instant or over a period of time.​

  • Student work is evaluated through rubric self-assessment, peer assessment, and teacher assessment during class critiques, projects, individual discussions, exhibitions, observations, and technical skill demonstrations.

  • Elective options encourage students to explore various topics, techniques and media in semester-long workshop style classes that meet once per week.

  • All courses are grounded in critique, and are designed
    to help students build deep understandings of how Design relates to a variety of disciplines.
