I´m attending Parsons this summer, Session 2 for graphic design.
I´m from Sweden so I would love to hear from someone else who is attending a course in session 2. Drop me a line at email@example.com!
Hey femmes & hommes!
I'm doing session II for the fashion design summer classes at Parsons. I would like to get to know some people who are also going to be there, before I go. If you would like to get to know me either send me a message or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
They have introduced more classes for the Summer Programme 2010. They sound very promising, specializing in Arts & Fashion Management to Writing & Curation. I'm considering doing a Photography course titled The Image of Fashion & The Fashion Of Images, focusing on advertising, communication & branding. I'm planning to pay for the course myself & wondered if anyone could share how much expenses is ideal over the course duration. Also if the handbook requires you to buy any specific equipment or materials. Thanks
I'm 19 at the moment, but I'm assuming this program is to appeal to I guess high schoolers, or am I wrong? I think it's a fantastic opportunity to have and I feel like it would help me when later transferring to Parsons, but I'm a bit skeptical about me possibly being the only older student attending one of these things :/
I think that is it's for either, but of course, I can't say what the actual classes are like ... whether it's mostly high school students or high school grads or even if there are some older people there (as in older than college age) ... but it looks like they welcome anyone with the desire to explore thie field.
Here's what it says on Parsons New School's site:
Parsons Summer Intensive Studies: New York is an exceptional academic art and design program enriched by the vast resources of New York City. Whether you're a high school student preparing to apply to college, a college student interested in enhancing your own program and earning transfer credits, or an adult investigating career options, our summer courses can help you define and achieve your goals.
This intensive four-week, four-credit program is open to anyone wishing to deepen their knowledge of art and design in an academically rigorous and artistically stimulating environment.

There are college level programs. if you go to the applying option pages, they state whether if it is for uni/high school students. Both Parsons NY/Paris offer college summer studies, depending on the course you want to take.
