Spring Break: April 11th–14th, from 1:00–2:30 p.m.
Students in grades 6-12 are invited to join us in-person or on Zoom during Spring Break to learn graphic design concepts to be used on the Cricut Maker. The Cricut Maker is a digital machine that can cut, score, and draw on a variety of surfaces like paper, fabric, wood, and leather.
This program will use two free, downloadable software programs; Inkscape and GIMP, to teach graphic design. If you cannot download these no problem! They are available on RollApp, a website you can use on your web browser.
We will be designing a bookmark, sticker, and greeting card. All projects will later be cut out using the Cricut Maker. But wait, there’s more! If you want to learn to use the Cricut Maker, then you can schedule a time to work with Erik to cut out your designs. And that’s not all! This program will be held virtually on Zoom or in-person in the Media Lab. This will be Erik’s first hybrid program for tweens and teens. There are a limited number of in-person spots though so sign up fast!
