Get to Know Our Students

Join a Student Group

Students have numerous opportunities to make their mark on campus—including through student groups and student chapters of professional organizations based out of the Sam Fox School.

Take a Fox Fridays Workshop

Fox Fridays is a weekly, no-stress workshop series where students from across campus can learn new tools, techniques, and processes.

Dec 8, 1 – 3:50pm • Bixby Print Shop

This workshop, taught by Kelli Anderson will consist of physical and digital components. The class will be held in person on Friday, and over Zoom on Saturday. We will cover the entire process of printing a short looping animation: from outputting frames, to automating a contact sheet, to choosing color separations, printing, and finally: stitching it all back together again. We will go over file setup (instruction will be led in Photoshop, but alternative tool ideas are welcome!) as well as the basic operation of the machine, changing between different color drums, and the accurate registration of multiple colors.

Instructor: Kelli Anderson

Upcoming Events

Dec 14, 5 – 7pm • Des Lee Gallery, 1627 Washington Ave.

Join us for the pop-up exhibition of Afraid of the Dark, the culmination of a semester of playing with light. Twelve students have spent months rapidly prototyping ideas using digital fabrication technology. Now, they present the results of that experimentation. The lighted pieces range from the elegant, to the dramatic, to the downright zany. They seek to explore the space-transforming properties of illumination, to challenge how we traditionally interact with lamps, and to model usable products. Most of all, each piece represents the creator’s unique take on the power of light. Welcome, and prepare to be dazzled.
