Introduction to Interior Design

Attended: Introduction to Interior Design


LOVED this course. I just wanted to dip my toe in Interior Design and this was the perfect one to do it. We mostly listened to Don Kossar's design 101 and principles/theory of Interior Design while taking notes, with two projects throughout - we each re-designed a space with accurate measurements and had to plan furniture layouts, and then worked on design boards for the final project. Don makes it clear from the beginning that you can do "as much or as little" of the project as you want, and that the key thing is to have fun doing it. Don is also a hilarious old school New Yorker - in six weeks, he gives a delightful "quick version" overview of the world of Interior Design, and makes an otherwise normal subject pretty amusing and fun with his various stories and examples from his years in the field. It was a wonderful summer brain break with zero stress. Take the class with Don!

A lot of material packed into these classes! If you're at all interested in Interior Design this is the best option to get your pallet wet. For the cost of the class I wish it were another 2 weeks.

Great way to start if you’d like to get a feel about what interior designing is really about. Intense 6 weeks but fun because you get to work on a project like a true ID!

It was a good introduction class to color studies. I especially enjoyed picking through the images and analyzing the color combinations.

The desks were set up so that half the class had their backs to the front instructional screen. Many students including myself were frustrated that we could not work on our computers & see The screen at the Front of the Room at the same time. I felt like it was hard to follow along when I had to keep turning around. The teacher blazed through the program & several students complained that he was going too fast. He had no hand outs to refer to & had no homework week to week so it was hard to review what we had been taught. There was no tech person accompanying him so it was only him teaching & giving one on one instruction. When many of us had to ask for help (this was an introductory course) he wasn’t able to help us all & he became frustrated that he couldn’t just continue with the lesson. I’m pretty disappointed with the class & truthfully expected more. If he at least had handouts that would have been helpful to refer to as he rushed through & I read this complaint about the class prior to taking the course. Prior to the first class I was on the phone for almost an hour trying to get through to someone at the school to tell me 1) Is this class for PC or Mac? 2) What do I need to bring to class? A laptop? A usb? When I finally called a different Dept just to get a real person they finally put me in touch with someone in continuing education. Then that person couldn’t answer my questions. I would not recommend this class to other beginners. Really only if you are already seasoned in 3D is this class appropriate.
