WUG Workshop
by Katie Kath: From “Blah,” to “Brava,”: How to make an uninspiring project your best portfolio piece
Location TBA
Free cultural event, open to all students
Registration required
Educational programming for pen & ink

From “Blah,” to “Brava,”: How to make an uninspiring project your best portfolio piece
will consist of two parts. First there’s the lecture/take notes to discuss the following:
-Identifying the root cause for discontentment in a project
-Realigning current priorities to mirror real career goals
-Inventing both creative and practical solutions to uninspiring projects

The second part will consist of all students breaking into critique groups. Every student MUST bring a completed project they did for a class that they deemed “boring and totally uninspiring.” They will discuss their projects with each other, and offer each other ideas on how to re-work their projects to make them more inspiring. Students will take notes and develop an actual strategy that they plan on executing after the workshop, turning their old projects into inspiring, portfolio-worthy ones.

This means the only required materials for the workshop are:
-completed “uninspiring” project with original project description
-Pen, pencil, and all note-taking materials.
-Students may NOT take notes on their laptop or smartphone.
