SPARK STARTS TONIGHT
WHAT IS SPARK?
Our goal is to illuminate resources, conduct collaboration, and inspire a community of discovering designers. We do this through a weekly tutorial session.  We deeply desire to help you increase your graphic communication skills to take studio projects to the next level. All of our tutorials are practical and applicable directly to your work within the IAPD curriculum.  We are also here to answer questions, share resources, and assist with anything from computer programs (Adobe Suite, Rhino, Revit) to rendering (by hand, in Vray or 3DS Max) to concept development.  Looking forward to a great semester! SEE YOU TONIGHT, 7-8 PM AT APDWEST.
STUDENT COUNCIL WELCOME EVENT
   
TONIGHT! Student Council is putting on a welcome event for the second years and introducing information about representative elections!  It will be 5:30-6:30 at APD West in the IAPD End Space.
