Graphic Design Camps Come to Mississippi College
May 15, 2014
High school students in metro Jackson and public relations professionals can upgrade their graphic design skills during summer programs at Mississippi College.
The MC Art Department is hosting a camp for students and workshop for professionals taught by graphic arts professor Karlos Taylor in June.
Dates are June 9-13 for the pipeline camp for high school art students interested in making graphic design their career choice. Classes for that week begin at 8 a.m. and conclude at 5 p.m. The cost is $300 per student and the price includes lunch from Monday through Friday. The classes cover the basics – from graphic design theory, software and practices.
The workshop for adults will run from June 9-20 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings on the Clinton campus. The hours are 6-8 p.m. The classes will cover basic graphic design principles and basic software use for Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.
The cost of the adult classes will be $300.
It’s the first time that graphic design has been included in MC’s roster of summer camps – from sports to music to Bible study and worship. In June and July, there will be 6,000 children from 15 Southern states attending summer camps on the Clinton campus.
Each graphic design program in June is designed to attract a minimum of 10 people.
The deadline to sign up for the graphic design programs is June 6. People can register online at MC Marketplace under summer camps or contact Karlos Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 601.925.7365.
