Spark216: The Design Edition
Join us for the design edition of Spark216. During this fun and creative event attendees will be exposed to graphic design, web design, architecture, photography, illustration, and design thinking while participating in thirty-minute sessions led by local design professionals. Spark216 also offers parents an info session on the importance of design careers in the 21st century.
The Design Learning Challenge
An interactive design workshop where students and designers work together to create solutions.
About these activities:
Work with real designers to find solutions for sustainability in this free two-hour interactive design workshop. Explore how a professional designer approaches problems, designs solutions, and find out what a career in design might look like. It’s time to unlock your creative potential—the world needs your ideas!
This workshop was developed by designExplorr, an organization devoted to helping youth find their way to creative careers.
Jacinda Walker, facilitator, and owner of designExplorr, will help you design and create something from your own imagination while working with professional designers.
Don’t miss this chance to create solutions the way real designers do!
Our next Challenge event is…
at Whittier Elementary, 315 W 26th St, Minneapolis, MN
