Design Camp recruiting instructors for 2011 cycle
Since its inception over 25 years ago, Design Camp has exposed more than 2,000 high school students to the exciting world of design. Design Camp informs students about college study in design and raises awareness of the impact of art and design through a series of week-long summer programs. Due to increased popularity, Design Camp has become an outreach program of CAM (Contemporary Art Museum), an initiative of the College of Design of NC State University.
Design Camp students work with camp instructors and teaching assistants on projects involving every discipline offered at the college: architecture, landscape architecture, industrial design, art + design and graphic design. Camp projects challenge students to explore their creativity and critical-thinking skills while pushing them to try a range of techniques and media.
Projects are developed around a specific theme each year. The theme in 2011 is “sustainability.” In addition to studio projects, students attend presentations and participate in creative challenges.
2011 Camp Dates:
- Design Camp/Overnight 1: June 19-25
- Design Camp/Day: July 10-15
- Design Camp/Overnight 2: July 24-30
