Creative advising includes 8 two-hour mentorship sessions. In these sessions, the creative advisor works individually with the student to 1) identify a project their passionate about, 2) design and execute that project, 3) share the project with their community in a way that best fits their product & Personality.

Over the course of the 8 weeks, the student will walk through the 8 pillars of the creative process, learning how to bring an idea to fruition! The student will also develop the mindsets required to persevere through creative challenge and apply those mindsets to their own work.
