MENTORSHIP 

In the personalized mentorship sessions, Merve Cirisoglu shares her design outlook and other skills that she has accumulated through her experience studying and working on animation.

Each week students attend a one-on-one mentorship session over Skype. Each session includes a lecture, homework critiques, and time to go over any questions that students have. They are also assigned weekly exercises based on the lecture that will help hone their design sensibilities. Sessions will be fast-paced and aimed at students' goals about preparing an education plan, creating a portfolio, improving their talents and understanding of design. To reserve a space, please get in touch through the contact form.
