Introduction to FAY DESIGN Virtual Education Series
For the past ten years, the FAYDesign Programs Design Camp has offered students aged 8-18 the opportunity to learn about the design professions through hands-on projects, tours, presentations and discussions led by faculty in all three disciplines from the Fay Jones School- architecture, interior design and landscape architecture. Students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty and collaborate with peers in a fun and creative studio environment as they explore the design process. Expectations for Summer 2020 were to include a state-wide enrollment of 250-300 participants, over a seven-week period, in five locations in all corners of the state-Fayetteville, Little Rock, Hot Springs, Wilson and El Dorado.
While FAYDesign Summer Design Camps have been an ideal way for students to gain valuable hands-on experience, the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic have caused us to rethink our approach. In the summer of 2020, we started FAY DESIGN Virtual Education to take the place of our in-person Design Camps, but also as a new program for us to provide online design education.
This series provides a virtual version of the discussions, field trips and projects that students experience during each of the school’s week long, in-person camp sessions. The 25 videos created are a mix of informational segments about the school and its programs, virtual tours of buildings, spaces and places throughout Arkansas and at the heart of the videos are a series of hands-on workshops that students can participate in along with us at home.
You can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org as you are watching the videos if you have questions or would like to share your work with us! And you can share your work with us on social media by using the hashtag #faydesign2020.
The funding to create these videos was provided by a grant from the Alice Walton Foundation as well as support for the University of Arkansas Student Success Center.
