Design & Entrepreneurship (Run a Marketing Campaign)

Interested in drawing, art, or design? This is the hands-on design camp for students who are always doodling, where they learn how to use art professionally!

In this camp, you'll complete an actual, professional design project and run a media campaign for a local nonprofit or small business. First, you'll learn how to be a better artist and designer, through a series of fun activities led by a skilled instructor. Then, you'll learn the basics of modern digital design on web platforms, such as Canva, Pixlr, and Adobe. You'll touch on color choice, contrast, composition, digital typography, and more.  


Finally, you will earn your first real design credit and learn how professional graphic designers work by creating a real ad campaign. Previous students have created posters, social media campaigns, and other collateral seen by thousands. Start building your design and art portfolio while you're still in school!

All you’ll need is a computer for the class.

Tech & Entrepreneurship (Build Your Own App)

In this course, you will learn the skills of a coder and the mindset of an entrepreneur, through actually building and releasing an iPhone app with your friends! You'll gain an exciting set of 21st-century tech skills and learn how to make your own apps and games. To start, you’ll learn about logic, coding (Javascript and React), and design, through fun, group-based activities, led by an enthusiastic instructor. At the end, you'll complete a final project where you make an app for a real non-profit organization. Previous students have created real apps being used right now by a mental health charity, a New York non-profit, and a charter school in the UK for their final projects.

You don’t need any previous experience or special software for the course: all you need is your creativity and a computer!
