A fully online workshop for high school students

The Online Interior Design Summer Workshop provides high school students with the opportunity to experience interior design firsthand. The workshop blends tradition and innovation in creative learning, covering areas in: applied critical thinking and exploration with materials. During this 30-day online workshop, you will explore the fundamentals of 2D and 3D concepts; learn basic drawing and illustration skills, play with color use, and light effects, and learn how interior environments affect human behavior. At completion, you will have a portfolio of work--a required component of the application process in many accredited interior design programs--and a waiver for an interior design 3-credit hour elective course if you declare a major in Interior Design at Ball State. If you have an interest in pursuing interior design at the college level, make plans to attend this online summer workshop in 2020.
