Art Career: Imagineering

Last week’s Studio Habit of Mind was Understanding Art Worlds: I can learn about art careers and how artists work with other artists. Today’s link is about an art career called Imagineering. Yes, that’s a real job title and it combines many fields, like math, science, engineering, and art.

Below is a link for Khan Academy’s “Imagineering in a Box” course, which goes through 3 design stages: 1) Build your own world 2) Build your own attractions 3) Build your own character. This is a free course that provides a lot of information and creative opportunities. 

Art Job: Industrial Designer

Almost everything you use during your day was designed by an industrial designer. From your water bottle to your notebook, an industrial designer had to think of what it would look like and how it would work.

Think of an item you’d want to use. How can you make it better? What will you add, take away, or change? Draw, collage, or build your new design.
