Syris Norelli, from Elkins, a student at Haas Hall Academy and Thomas Chism, from West Fork, who will be a ninth grader at West Fork High School, attended the free summer design camp at the Fay Jones School of Architecture for four days in July, learning about architecture, landscape architecture and interior design. University of Arkansas design faculty taught using hands-on projects, tours, movies and discussions.
Local Students Take Part in Summer Design Camp at Fay Jones School of ArchitecturePosted by WestForker
The design faculty worked closely with local schools to recruit a diverse group of students who will be entering the ninth grade and are interested in design professions.
Students developed their design abilities through sketching exercises and also worked to create a garden project where they designed their very own “hideaway” from concept to completion. Students also had the opportunity to learn about former architecture professor and Arkansas native Fay Jones through the documentary Sacred Spaces and a tour of the Jones family home. The house tour provided insight into the unique design style for which Jones is known.
