The Design Associates (Graphic Design Guild) Host Lecture And Workshop By Veronica Corzo-Duchardt

Veronica Corzo-Duchardt received an MFA from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago in both Graphic Design and Creative Writing. Her design work is highly influenced by her fine art and visa-versa. Her screen prints have been shown around the United States and are now being sold at CB2 (a division of Crate & Barrel).

Her lecture will focus on the influence between her fine art and design.

The workshop she will be hosting will be based on her Neche Collection.
Participants are asked to bring an object (or objects) that have personal meaning to them. They will create several collaborative pieces based on the objects brought in.

We have space for 15 students for the workshop. If we have enough interest, it may be possible to open a second workshop in the afternoon. Please email with questions and interest.
