Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design Builds Futures with Design Camp

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Design Camp, held each summer by the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design on the University of Arkansas campus, at Garvin Gardens in Hot Springs, in Little Rock,  and the in the historic town of Wilson, gives High school students the opportunity to work directly with U of A faculty to draw and design buildings and landscapes.

The camp is a hands-on experience where students can expand their talents and explore the pursuit of architecture or design in college. And at the U of A, they get a taste of college life, working in the studios and sketching buildings and scenes across the region. This camp is just one way the U of A reaches out to the state, supports student success and builds the future of design, one student at a time.
