SUMMER PROGRAMS/CAMPS

BALL STATE - YOUTH DESIGN FORUM

For the past twelve years Ball State’s Interior Design program has offered a high school Youth Interior Design Forum. This is a workshop experience where high school students of all levels learn about interior design in a hands-on way. The workshop explores fundamentals of 2D and 3D concepts, basic drawing and illustration skills, use of color and light effects, and how interior environments affect human behavior. At the end of the workshop, students have new friends, new perspectives, and a personal portfolio full of ideas!

This year, once again, we will be offering a ten day on-campus workshop during the summer and two online workshops during the summer for high school students who have an interest in studying interior design at the college level. Registration for the summer Youth Interior Design Forum is open now.

About 80 percent of college students in the United States end up changing their major at least once, according to the National Center for Education  statistics.  Participation in this workshop will help students build an art portfolio, help them make their final decision about declaring “interior design” as a major and also help them with a smooth transition to college after this exciting campus experience. Further, we will waive a required elective course for them, if they participate in the workshop and get admitted to Ball State University to study Interior Design.  

For more information and registration please visit our website at www.bsu.edu/designforum.
