Harrington College Offers Complimentary Design Workshops

November 3, 2011 Graphic & Comm. Design, Photography 0 Comments

For anyone interested in continuing or beginning their education in design, the Harrington College of Design is offering a series of complimentary workshops to help kick-start your journey into the design world! Designed to provide a basic introduction to the workshop’s subject, each 1½-hour session consists of lecture and demonstration followed by hands-on studio work by attendees. Attend one of these upcoming workshops to help get a better idea of what you can expect in courses at a design college.

Duffy O’Connor (Harrington Foundations instructor, color/drawing workshop leader and awesome Chicago artist), explains, "These workshops offers students, prospective students and the generally interested an idea of what it’s like to be a student in one of my classes. The work is not graded but is critiqued in a supportive manner. Students also receive an Elements sketchbook with this series of workshops that is theirs to keep. From drawing form and space to basic color terminology and the fundamentals of composition, each workshop provides a great overview to its subject."
