Teacher's Prospects edition
If you know any Year 11 students who are passionate about design and interested in getting a valuable hands-on insight into the Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Visual Arts courses available at UWA, they are encouraged to join us for our 2015 Summer Design Studio.
The January Studio is aimed at current Year 11 students heading into Year 12 in 2015, and will focus on a design project in the grounds of the UWA campus. This small scale project will enable students to gain an understanding of the creative process common to architects, landscape architects, urban designers and artists. Students will have the opportunity to design an object, place or space after solving challenging design problems in a creative studio environment.
Activities on offer during the 4.5 day studio include:
- Talks by architects, landscape architects and visual artists at the Faculty
- Model making and drawing classes
- Tuition and design advice
- An introduction to the latest computer modelling and rendering program
- An opportunity to meet with current Design students at UWA
- A site visit
- An exhibition of all the students' work at the culmination of the studio
Cost: $240 per student (all materials and equipment, as well as access to a fully equipped workshop will be provided).
Note: fee may be waived on an individual basis to students from Aspire UWA Schools.
