 Tri-County Community College Hosts Graphic Design Youth Summer Camp

Ten talented middle school students sharpened their skills this summer at Tri-County Community College’s youth camp, iDesign. The iDesign Junior Camp was designed for 6th-8th grade students that show interest in the field of graphic art and design, and was held June 24-27.

Throughout the week, students were introduced to the field of graphic art and design, instructed on how to use industry standard software, and were encouraged to express their creative flair with a series of projects and activities.

“The students were very eager to display their creativity with their new found skills,” said the instructor Dotie Stafford-Ortega. “Throughout the week they made everything from emblems, to mock identification cards. Quite a few students immediately posted their designs on Facebook to share with their friends.

“Graphic design is an increasingly more important skill to have in your repertoire,” said Ms. Stafford-Ortega. “I am pleased that these students were able to explore their interest in such a useful field. Some of the designs that the students shared with me looked professionally done.”
