Design program to show off its work this Thursday
April 12, 2011 by Max Hirtz
The Foundations in Design Certificate Program will be hosting a year-end gallery event on April 14.
Anyone can drop by for the public event, from 2-4 p.m. on the third floor of the Richmond Kwantlen campus in rooms 3010, 3020 and 3850.
A separate, invitation-only event will be held from 6-9 p.m. The evening event will include a raffle, with proceeds going to charity.
The gallery will feature everything created by the students in the one-year program, which is designed to give students a basic understanding of all types of design.
“Basically, it’s a broad, basic program that just introduces the students to the world of design, because there’s so many different directions that you can go,” said Dylan Seger, a student who has finished the program and who volunteered to be the coordinator for the event.
The goal for the event is to “open up people’s minds to the possibility of design,” he added.
There will be a wide range of styles on display, as there are over 30 students in the program.
