Academy Weekly: Sculpting Workshop Ahead, TV Feature on Industrial Design Project, Tips on Handling School Online

Before anything else, don’t forget to RSVP for the upcoming Head Sculpting workshop with Tom Durham. From last week, we dished out plenty of tips for school online. Catch them all in this week’s Academy Weekly.

The big thing that came out last week was the School of Industrial Design’s feature episode on the new TV series California by Design. The students, represented by Santiago Bastidas, presented their project AURA. It’s all sorts of cool, so skip to the 7:15 mark for the segment, in case you missed the show last weekend.
