High Schoolers, Freshmen Discover Design at UK

Published: Aug 7, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 7, 2014) — For the fourth year in a row, high school students and incoming first-year students at the University of Kentucky had the opportunity to explore design fundamentals in the UK College of Design (CoD) Design Discovery Program. This weeklong program is designed to expose prospective students to the type of learning environment they would encounter in a design education setting.

 

Participants took part in design and drawing exercises, model-making workshops led by UK/CoD faculty, and field trips to gain an understanding of what constitutes the studio experience of a first-year student at the college.

 

“The program theme was 'a city of spaces,'” said program coordinator Jordan Hines.  “As a studio, we continually looked at our work as a collective idea; we displayed all the work as a single work or a continuous exhibit of design ideas, linked by a common theme.”

 

In addition to work in the studio, students toured local design firms Ross Tarrant Architects, alt32 and Gray Construction, where they spoke with UK/CoD alumni and design professionals.
