Design Camp

FAY Design Virtual Education

In order to protect the community from the spread of COVID-19, the University of Arkansas canceled all summer programs, including all of our on-site Design Camp sessions. As an alternative, the Fay Jones School has produced a series of design education videos that are available online. These videos will be published in July and August on our school's YouTube channel

What you need to know:

In these FAY Design Virtual Education videos, students can learn about the design professions through hands-on projects, virtual tours, presentations and discussions led by architecture, landscape architecture and interior design faculty of the Fay Jones School.
