Opening career pathways for talented urban youth

Thursday Workshops + Meet The Designers

A pillar of the SUMMER IMMERSION is a series of weekly workshops at area colleges, studios, partner firms, and museums.

Thursday Workshops

In each session, prominent figures from the creative community guide Youth Designers through intensive hands-on thinking and doing. The series begins with a crash course in key software and then turns to practical exercises in visual analysis focused on developing key intellectual abilities in a variety of environments and disciplines, from advertising to curation to fashion and beyond.

Our workshops are always evolving. Here's a sampling of what we've offered in recent years:

  • Apparel & Footwear Design at Reebok International Headquarters
  • Digitas Visit and Creative Panel
  • Museum of Fine Arts Visit & Exhibit Workshop
  • MassArt Pre-College Design Workshop
  • ICA Docent Tour & Art Lab session
  • Kirkwood Printing Process Tour
  • Boston Fashion & Lifestyle with Daniela Corté Karmaloop (above)

 

Meet The Designers

We bring small, diverse groups of high-profile design professionals into urban public schools, where they share the personal journeys that led them into their respective fields.
