CAROLINA DESIGNS NEW YORK (AP) For the first time, a group of young designers have turned their passion into an actual career.
Carolina Designs has grown from a small group of college students in New York City to more than 2,500 students at nearly 200 schools around the country, bringing them together to design for schools and the broader community.
They’re doing it all by themselves.
Carola’s designers are creating educational, social and cultural events, helping schools and businesses build brand recognition and making students feel important and valued.
Carolinas founders, a team of six designers and a few students, say they’re making a difference in communities, and in their communities, as well.
“I think there’s a lot of people that don’t realize how much of a difference we can make for them and for the world,” said Melissa Kasten, who founded Carolina in 2015.
“We are so incredibly excited to be able to be here.”
The group started out designing for the school that would later become Carleton University.
Now it’s a global brand that is bringing the creative and the community together, to help educate children, create a network and help the world grow.
They started with an initial idea for the program in 2017, but now they’re expanding.
Carolinas school district in Carrolton, Iowa, opened its doors to designers and others last spring.
The school now offers more than 30 classes per year, including two in the classroom.
Students can learn design concepts in the first and second years, then switch to other subjects such as art, business and design.
Carolyn Carlinas family founded Carolina, which she founded in 2017.
The center is open to students and their families.
Carolean Designs says that, unlike traditional high schools, it’s not focused on the arts.
It also offers a variety of programs for students in the fall and winter.
In addition to learning about the arts, students can learn to sew, paint and make art projects.
Caroline and her husband have also designed two of the group’s projects.
The group says they’re doing that because of the passion they have for their work.
Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Design, one of the nation’s top design schools, offers a design-focused program called Design-A-Thon that allows students to learn to create in their spare time and make their own projects, from a project to a poster.
Carolas students also work with a program called Open Lab, where students make their first designs in the space.
Caroans students work together to create new products, and it’s through the Open Lab that students can make their design.
That collaboration helps to create an experience that students are passionate about, said Andrea Schmucker, director of Open Lab.
Caros students also participate in the Open Studio, which lets them make a variety, free-form pieces that they share with their peers.
Students then create a poster, then print it, and give it away.
“That’s really what this program is all about,” Schmucker said.
Carolicas students work with their school district to get their school to embrace their design work.
Students and their parents can use the school’s computer lab to design a design for a school event or make a poster for a project.
Carinoys students have also helped to organize their community and community organizations.
Carolina Students has partnered with the North Carolina Youth Leadership Institute to help students create and distribute art materials to their community.
Carolanas school has also created an art gallery in which students can show their work and get a chance to meet with other students and others.
Schmucker said that they hope to work with schools in the future to teach students how to design.
“The art world has been really open to us and really welcoming to us,” she said.
“They are really excited to learn and to work together.
That’s really the way to build a relationship and that’s really really what we’re here for.”
Carolina also works with local artists to create their own products.
One of its students is Sarah Cresswell, a student in the fashion industry.
She designed the collection for a local high school.
“It’s really exciting to see students who have such a passion for something, and really see that they have the ability to really be creative,” Cressill said.
The school has launched a website that includes a gallery of work from students, their teachers and their students, and more information.
