SFC Design CLASS
OVERVIEW Spring 2020 FEBRUARY 25 - MAY 28, 2020
This course is for alumni who would like to further develop the visual skills they gained during an earlier SFC photography class. The course will focus on projects that cultivate each student’s proficiency in using the Adobe suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign).
Born out of a desire to keep growing as artists and photographers, this course will be a way of using SFC foundations to explore individual creative pursuits.
Instructor - Jenn Lema
SFC Volunteer Outreach Advisor Jennifer Lema moved to Wilkes-Barre to join the talented group of architects and designers at Bohlin Cywinski Jackson after graduating from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institue School of Architecture (RPI). She grew up in New York City, where she explored art and design through creative youth development programs and taught summer design studios to high school students. Jennifer’s passion and background in architecture has been the scaffold for continuing her work on creative projects and her years as a student, volunteer and teacher have deepened her belief in the positive impacts of a design education.

SCHOLARSHIP LEVELS (Northeast Pennsylvannia Class)
Full family* income less than 30k Tuition: Free
Mid-Level family* income less than 75k Tuition: $250
Partial family* income more than 75k Tuition: $500
A *family is considered an average of four people. To determine your scholarship level (1) calculate your family's annual income (add the total amount of money your family made last year), (2) divide it by the number of people in your household, (3) multiply that amount by four. (4) The result is your average family income and that number can be used to determine what level scholarship you will receive if you are accepted into the program.
Example of a Mid-Level Scholarship for NEPa: (1) $60,000 family annual income, (2) divided by five people in a house equals $ 12,000, (3) times four equals (4) $48,000 average *family income.
