Our friends at Creative Briefs are running two exclusive online projects for Children’s University participants this week funded by Arts Council England Covid Emergency Response Fund. This is a fantastic opportunity for children to take part in a validated design workshop online. If these are successful, we may be able to offer more of these in the future. This session is aimed at KS2.
What are the workshops?
During the workshops children will work on real design challenges set by professional clients. One is centred around t-shirt design and the other is a dinosaur design challenge for a dinosaur museum in Hull. The session will be about 90 minutes long, and children will:
- learn and use the design process that professional designers use
- apply this design process to work on design briefs for real clients
- work alongside Creative Briefs’ team of professional designers, illustrators, and marketing experts
- earn a passport stamp for taking part
Children will need pens and paper and a video connection to Zoom and Creative Briefs ask that a parent or guardian is also present. All delivery staff are DBS checked.
When are the workshops?
There are three sessions running each day on June 11th and June 12th. Spaces are limited, but they will be repeating the session at the following times:
9.15am - 10.45am
11am - 12.30pm
1pm - 2.30pm
How do people sign up?
Spaces are limited so it is first come, first served – email email@example.com for secret sign up details
