There is a distinctive difference between an event planner and an event designer. The event planner is involved in every aspect of the logistical project management of the planning process and the event itself; however, it is the event designer who designs the event details from top to bottom, including the design surrounding the activities that make an event come to life. In many cases it is the designer who extracts the emotional and personal elements of a client and weaves it into the event design as an expression of who they are. Students will learn to create and transform ordinary spaces into sumptuous, theatrical environments, translating a client s vision into awe-inspiring reality. Preston s passion for his work has led to many public speaking engagements and numerous television appearances. May 14 June 18, Wednesdays, 6 10 p.m. Tuition: $1,395 (Textbook included.)
