Title: "Roll Up Your Sleeves"
Description: We don’t stumble into a life we love, we design it and work on it. In this creative session, young artists will design a product or service oriented business and make a plan for success. Students will learn things including naming their business, creating a logo, producing renders of their interior and exterior buildings, as well as a 3D build of their building sign. They will be taking their ideas from concept to design and ultimately creation will help them learn how to make a vision come to life and they’ll learn a lot about the commercial design process along the way!
