Pick one of our 2022 tracks:
Interior Design - Track Leader: Nicolette Brehm Learn what real interior designers do! Campers will design a living space for their favorite celebrity. While designing this space, you will learn about project programming, the design process, space planning, and how to create a color palette. You will learn about and choose finishes and furniture for your celebrity space. You will hand draw your floor plans, compose imagery boards, and create a presentation for your project. We will also show current student work and interior design projects from around the world.
Video Production - Track Leader: Jonny Wheeler Have you ever wanted to make a movie? You can learn how to tell a story using video from development to the big screen. We’ll start by applying narrative structure to a script and planning the shots. Then we’ll dive into capturing professional-quality video. With guidance in pacing, we’ll cut shots together using industry-standard software. At the end of the week, we will watch your short films on the big screen in Stout’s historic Harvey Hall Theatre.
Comics: Creative Non-Fiction - Track Leaders: Mary Clime & Kate Roberts Edenborg Love drawing and storytelling? You might just be a cartoonist! Campers will learn the ins and outs of writing, drawing, and producing an 8-page comic in this track. This collaborative project will go beyond the traditional superhero or newspaper comic by introducing creative non-fiction plot lines and honing your storytelling skills. Students will receive direction from both a comic artist and a non-fiction writer to create a unique comic book.
The Art of Chain Making: Metalsmithing & Jewelry - Track Leader: Rose Schlemmer Chain making is an ancient art practice in which wire is formed into small rings and woven together to create wearable objects that range from simple to complex. In this class, we will learn the basics of creating wire forms using hand tools, soldering, and different styles of chains using both metal wire and sheet metal. Students will make several different chain samples then design and create a jewelry piece of their own.
