Mentoring Speaker Series

The Mentoring Speaker Series is about bringing DC metro designers and creatives to a local high school once a month to share their work, process, and experience. By exposing them to various disciplines within design throughout the year, the student participants have the opportunity to see that design is more than just identity systems and advertising. Speakers present once a year to 1-2 back to back classes (approx. 15-20 students) and include creatives from the fields of screenprinting, exhibit, environmental/signage design, illustration, and photojournalism. Interested sharing your passion? Contact our mentoring director, Melanie Charlton to sign up. Please note, our current partnering school is West Potomac Academy located in Alexandria, Virginia.
