UI College of Art and Architecture Invites High School Students to Summer Design Week 2014

Wednesday, May 14


MOSCOW, Idaho – May 14, 2014 – MOSCOW, Idaho - Summer Design Week, an art and design immersion program for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors, returns to the University of Idaho campus July 6-12.

During the week, students will explore Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Studio Art & Design and Virtual Technology & Design programs through studios, lectures and workshops. 

“This is a unique opportunity to work closely with esteemed faculty from each discipline,” said Mark Hoversten, dean of the College of Art & Architecture. “By week's end, students have a greater understanding of the course of study they wish to pursue — along with new skills to help them get the most out of their first collegiate experience.”

Students also engage in extracurricular activities and have the opportunity to participate in a closing reception and student exhibit in UI’s Reflections Gallery.

“Summer Design Week provides an excellent opportunity to experience on-campus living in a fun and relaxed environment,” said Phillip Mead, program director and associate professor of architecture. “Activities outside of the studio and classroom allow students to engage with like-minded peers from other high schools while trying the University of Idaho culture on for size.”

Cost of attendance is $985 and includes art supplies, room and board; college credit is available for an additional fee. Registration closes June 6, 2014.
