The Interior Design Summer Workshop provides high school students with the opportunity to experience interior design firsthand. During the 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 the end of the workshop, you will have new friends, new perspectives, and a personal portfolio full of ideas. If you have an interest in pursuing interior design at the college level, make plans to attend this summer workshop.
