Design Camp

Design Camp

In order to protect the community from the spread of COVID-19, the University of Arkansas has canceled all summer programs, including all of our Design Camp sessions. We are brainstorming alternate ways to deliver design content. Please watch this page and our school’s social media for updates. If you have suggestions or questions, please contact us at faycamp@uark.edu. If you already registered and paid for camp, you will receive a refund for all fees. If you don’t see your refund by May 15, please contact us at faycamp@uark.edu.

What you need to know:

Design Camp offers the chance to learn about the design professions through hands-on projects, tours, presentations and discussions led by architecture, landscape architecture and interior design faculty of the Fay Jones School. Students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty and collaborate with peers in a fun and creative studio environment as they explore the design process.
