7 ADE: adventures in creative thinking

New: 7 Art + Design Excellence at KGSC.

jumpsTART is an excellence program for students passionate about Art and Design that looks at big ideas in a fun, playful creative way. Students get to think creatively about the real challenges of local and global communities, while developing their individual skills and insights and learning to work in creative teams. Each unit explores an aspect of contemporary community and the future problems we face in a changing world. The units explore art and design ideas from significant times and places in a fun and interactive environment to engage the students in critical and creative thinking in collaborative settings.

The program is supported by partnerships with QUT Creative Industries and QUT School of Design, and students will also have the opportunity to learn from local artists and designers, doing hands on work with them in the studio.
