The students are moved in and classes are well underway, it’s time for a little family visit. At CCAD we like to turn the family visit into a high-octane event with the annual Family Weekend.
This year’s event kicked off with comedian and magician Michael Kent, who performed to a packed Canzani Center Auditorium Friday night.
Saturday, after breakfast and a chance to get caught up on what’s going on with CCAD, the Student Programming Board raised the energy level with a Project Runway inspired family contest.
The challenge (a team challenge): make a garment from a selection of household objects (including trash bags, paper, tape and office supplies) in less than half an hour.
In true Project Runway fashion, each team’s garment was featured in a runway show and then scored by three judges. No one was out, but prizes were given to the top three winners. Family team winners were: team Swiler, third place; team Vetterly, second place; and first place went to team Stauble.
Clouds and the threat of rain didn’t dampen the festivities. For the rest of the afternoon students and their guests had a range of activities to check out, including the yearly favorite the carnival on the quad, tours of CCAD’s newest building, Design Studios on Broad, and demonstrations in ceramics and glass blowing.
