CAM Raleigh Middle School Summer Studio Registration Packet

The one-week summer studio merges conceptual development with hands-on explorations and emphasizes the importance of the design process from the initial idea to the final product.  Through one-on-one instruction with local designers you will develop your unique voice and individual abilities to bring creative ideas to life by utilizing critical thinking techniques that artists, architects, and designers rely on to convey conceptual and real propositions. In the collaborative studio setting you will explore hand-drawing, printmaking, physical modeling, sculpture, collage, and many other forms of creative media.  Ultimately you will discover the possibilities that art + design offers you to evaluate our surroundings, generate alternatives, and change the world according to your unique perspective!
