Grand View Art & Design Faculty Speak at Conference


SketchCamp Des Moines is a one-day conference/camp focused on the benefits and uses of sketching for individuals and teams from all disciplines and skill sets. This year, the Grand View art & design professors were invited to speak at two of the afternoon sessions:

Visual Thinking:
•Rachel Merrill Schwaller
•Cyndi Wiley

Sketching Panel:
•Mary Jones
•Aaron Tinder
•James Ewald

Four scholarships were offered to GV art & design students who completed an endurance exercise and turned in a sketchbook for judging.

Sketchcamp began last year in San Francisco and has since been replicated in Chicago and at SXSW. Earlier this year, Design+Tech put on a Mini SketchCamp DSM featuring Ron Wagner, comic book artist and illustrator, as the main speaker. Everyone had so much fun, Design+Tech and AIGA Iowa decided to come together to organize a full-day event.
