The 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 10-day 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. You will also have new friends, new perspectives, and a personal portfolio full of ideas. Additional opportunities around campus will allow you to build lasting friendships and experience living on a college campus. Sample activities include an afternoon of shopping, movie night, bowling night, and use of recreational facilities on campus for swimming, fitness, weights, Ping-Pong, and tennis. If you have an interest in pursuing interior design at the college level, make plans to attend this summer workshop in 2020.

The workshop is limited to 12 students so apply early to ensure your place in the workshop. For planning purposes only, the estimated workshop fee is $1250* based on 2019 rates. The fee covers your housing accommodation in a campus dormitory, a customized course book, drafting supplies/tools, and transportation to field trips in Muncie and Indianapolis. Meals are not covered by the fee. We suggest budgeting $20 to $25 per day to purchase your meals from on-campus dining facilities. Space is limited each summer, so plan to apply early.
