What Will You Learn?

Now that campers have practiced designing for someone else, it is time for them to create their own story. Some may need guidance to get started and questions such as, “What is important to you?, What do you want others to know about you?, Is there some event, tradition or message from your culture you could share?”, could help them focus on an idea.

As with client stories, encourage campers to use color, line, shape and texture as they make design decisions. Ask them to explain their choices so as to get beyond, “Pink is my favorite color, so that’s why I chose it.”

Use the croquis and Design Notes as needed.
