    • Open Studio is offered after school once a month, January through April and September through December in the Design Lab during the school year. This is a great opportunity not only for high school students to prepare for design study at the college level, but to be participating on campus during hours when actual College of Design studios are taking place.

      To register, students should complete our online registration form: Because there are limited spots in Open Studio, please stand by for an email regarding your acceptance as well as further instructions. Open Studio participation is FREE.

      This program is scheduled to run September–December in the Fall semester and January–April in the Spring Semester.

  2. A Journey In Pixels: Creation Stories at the Hunt Library
    • Start time: 07:00pm
    • End date: Thursday, September 25th
    • End time: 08:00pm
    • In a special visual showcase, a series of origin stories developed by the students in the Illustration Studio at NC State University College of Design, Department of Art + Design, will be featured throughout the Hunt Library on its ultra high-definition video walls. Ranging from humorous to lyrical, the stories illustrate the origins of a variety of flora and fauna.

      Join us to hear the students who developed Creation Stories discuss their work and see their designs integrated into the digital architecture of the building. As we move throughout the Hunt Library, Greg Cater, who taught the fall 2013 ADN480 class, will discuss the opportunities and challenges of designing for print versus digital displays.

      Presented by the NCSU Libraries, in collaboration with the NC State Department of Art + Design.
