From Concept to Object @ Massachusetts College of Art and Design

Students capture and develop ideas using a sketchbook or folder system that will be used throughout the certificate program. Fusing design activities and methodologies, including aesthetic sourcing (visual, literary, emotional, and structural), drawing and modeling, participants engage in design as a problem solving process. Projects emphasize the development of conceptual visualization through the exploration of two and three dimensional sketch techniques.

Then, learn how to carve your very own spoon using only two knives. After discussing form and function, decide if your spoon will be designed with specific use or visual element in mind.
