Art and Design Camp
Due to COVID-19, and out of concern for the safety of our guests, we have canceled all summer academic camps for 2020. We would love to host you for a campus visit when it is safe to do so. If you would like information on any of our academic programs, please contact Admissions.
June 8–12, 2020
Cedarville’s Art and Design Camp presents students an introduction to three areas of visual art: studio art, graphic design, and industrial design. This camp is aimed at providing students an understanding of some of the basic principles of art and design used in constructing a variety of visual concepts for both traditional and digital media. This goal will be achieved through instruction, group discussion, and hands-on experience in these three disciplines of visual art.
- The studio art portion of the camp will focus on seeing and responding visually using a variety of traditional studio techniques.
- The graphic design portion of the camp will expose students to theory, approaches, and techniques used in developing target-focused design solutions. This will include experience using state-of-the-art computer systems and software in the execution of digital design concepts.
- The industrial design component of the camp will expose students to the world of industrial design by visit to design studios, discussions with industrial designers, and demonstrations by designers.
The week will also include visits to the Dayton Art Institute, artist’s studios, and guided tours of leading area graphic design and industrial design firms.
Art and Design Camp is open to Christian students entering 10th through 12th grades, or incoming freshmen to Cedarville University, who are considering careers in graphic design, industrial and innovative design or studio art.
