DA VINCI DESIGN
Students enrolled in Da Vinci Design are preparing for college and 21st century careers in architecture, digital media, engineering design, industrial design, product design, and other jobs that call for skills in art, science and technology.
Students learn not only academic content but also the vital 21st century skills – including creativity, innovation, collaboration, problem-solving and communication – they need to become the next generation of artists, designers, thinkers and business leaders.
Examples of recent projects include redesigning skateboard backpacks and creating Flash animation movies to learn about motion and shape.
Da Vinci Design has partnerships with many local design leaders, including Art Center College of Design, Mattel, Belkin International, Northrop Grumman, Gensler, Karten Design and Siltanen & Partners, that offer project support, job shadowing opportunities, internships, and mentoring to help students master the real-world skills and knowledge that do not appear in the California content standards.
To learn more about Da Vinci Design, please visit DV Design Portal, our official school blog created and managed by Da Vinci Design's eJournalism students.
Students enrolled in Da Vinci Design have many opportunities to explore design beyond their core classes. Seminar classes have included Illustration, Product and Industrial Design, Toy Making, Web Programming, Game Design, Fashion Design, and Design Industry Competitions. Additionally, students can take Introduction to Engineering Design, a year-long college-level class for college credit that is offered in collaboration with Project Lead The Way.
Student progress is measured and assessed through traditional tests and quizzes, public presentations of learning, exhibitions, and digital portfolios.
