Question from Lauren S.
Hi, if I wasn’t able to attend one class, would it be possible to make up the class or be provided with the subject matter that I missed from the class?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse Staff
Hi Lauren! NYSID only provides makeup classes due to inclement weather. It is up to the student to make the decision if missing one session will be a loss to him or her.

Question from Paola G.
Hello! I am very interested in this class but I have some questions. I have basic knowledge of architecture but never work in that field, I am interested in starting a career in ID, but I have not been in a classroom in a long time. I would like to know if this class is the right one for me. Also, once the course is done are we going to get any kind of document or something that prove that we had taken the class ?? Thank you!
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse Staff
Hi Paola! The Introduction class will require 2 hours of work per week. It's meant to be a fun introduction to some of the basic skills and ideas. It is not for academic credit, so it's pretty low-pressure, by design. The topics include furniture layouts, using a scale ruler and the basics of hand drafting, creating a color scheme, working with textiles, and putting together a basic design presentation.
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse Staff
With only 12 students in the class, there is a lot of time to interact with the teacher and other students, and ask questions. You may request a certificate from the Office of the Registrar upon successful completion of the course.

Introduction to Interior Design
Reviewed by Laura P. on 7/25/2018
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!
