What does it take to be an artist and earn a living with your talent? The fashion, entertainment, interior design, visual, and digital arts industries are hungry for creative, conceptual thinkers.

Introduce your students to applied arts through a series of learn-by-doing presentations that connect design to practical careers.

Choose from nine different project-based presentations focused on career paths in Fashion, Textiles, Footwear, Graphics, Jewelry, Product Development, Costume Design, Set Design, and Interior Design. Each presentation includes design challenges and problem solving specific to these career paths.
