By Michelle Aiello 

After the success of last year’s program, students will return for Studio 38°84 Summer Camp in the College of Design this summer. 

Taking place July 10-16, 2022, this residential camp for high schoolers on UK’s campus is an innovative way to introduce the concept of design to a new cohort of students.

Classes are modeled after the College of Design’s undergraduate curriculum and taught by experienced faculty, giving students the opportunity to experience life as a college-level design student. Students will explore explore careers in architecture, interiors, and product design. Emphasis is on thinking through making, and students will have the opportunity to use cutting-edge tools of digital fabrication, immerse themselves in a hands-on design approach, and to meet other students from diverse backgrounds.

“Studio 38°84 is ideal for creative, problem-solving, out-of-the-box thinkers. It’s an immersive experience that offers motivated high school students an introduction to design and how design impacts the human experience,” said Dean Mitzi Vernon.  

Applicants are required to submit a statement of intent and a creative sample. Accepted students are responsible for the camp fee, which includes materials needed for the camp. Contact Amy Foulkes at amy.foulkes@uky.edu or 859-257-8870 or apply online at design.uky.edu/summer-camp.
