Teen Jam Summer Studio (Rising 8th to 12th Grade)

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States (map)

Are you creative but not sure how that translates into a career? Love to think up new ideas and bring them into being? Always talking about how the things you use and own could be better?  Maybe you should be a designer!

If you’re interested in a design career, join us this summer for Teen Jam Summer Studio. We’ll be going on a week of field trips to different design studios and schools in Atlanta talk to designers about their education and career path and to learn about their work.

We’ll learn about architecture careers at John Portman & Associates, about graphic and environmental design at ASD|SKY, about participatory and public design and industrial design at Georgia Tech, and about urban design at Midtown Alliance.

In addition to visiting design studios, we’ll also have a series of seminars that focus back at MODA where we’ll focus on the skills you need to take the next steps in design education including photography, portfolio building, illustration, design thinking, and branding.

From graphic design to architecture, you’ll learn how to turn your creative awesomeness into a career.

Teens ages 13-17 are invited to join us for Teen Jam Summer Studio.

Participants will:

  • Learn about a wide range of design fields through studio and school visits
  • Connect with the leaders of design in Atlanta
  • Practice career-applicable design skills like sketching and prototyping
  • Explore principles of portfolio-building
  • Build and practice career-building and network-building strategies
  • Practice presenting oneself as a creative professional

This is a week long camp for rising 8th to 12th grade students that runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. This camp is being held at Museum of Design Atlanta located at 1315 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309.

Tuition: MODA Members: $445 / Non-Members: $495
