Skill Workshops & Clinics

Workshops and clinics are hands-on practice sessions that specifically inform and strengthen a specific set of skills, and made for designers who have design software and experience.

Workshops are taught hands-on with software or demonstrations in technique and run for an average of eight (8) hours with critiques and an extended break. Clinics are shorter, focused hands-on training working sessions where the running time varies.
