So what will these last weeks look like? Well, you’ll be finishing up your classes next week and then we’ll have three days of reviews followed by a big huge clean up of the studios. Then we will all work together to hang the exhibition. Then… the OPENING. I’ve put it all together with some dates and times below!

May 4 (S) 1-4, 2013 Year End Celebration and Exhibition!
Professor Andrew Deutsch will be working with you to create a Ryonji Drawing following John Cage’s score. And the amazing news is that the works you create will be exhibited at the National Gallery in Tbilisi Georgia!
You’ll need to bring to class:
12 stones, each should be about the size of your palm or smaller.
a BUNCH of “not dusty” drawing materials – NO chalk or dusty stuff. Water colors are okay, Sharpies not so good. The more drawing materials the better.
one or two sheets of 12 in x 12 in paper
6 sided dice (one or two).
a ruler or straight edge
YOUR First International Exhibition! (or at least for most of you!)

These wonderful designers will present samples of design work, share ideas about the design process, as well as tell stories about things they’ve learned since leaving school. In addition, some of our students will share their thoughts about studying design and planning a career in design.
We invite you to bring your curiosity and questions for a conversation with our visiting designers following their presentations.
