Summer@CAPPA 2018

June 15, 2018

The UTA CAPPA building was filled with eager and new faces as 25 high school students participated in our annual weeklong summer camp called, “Summer@CAPPA”! This program is designated for students interested in architecture or interior design as they get to experience working in a studio from 9 to 5 daily. All students must also be nominated by a school official to be considered for the program.

Students were exposed to the beginning elements of architecture school by engaging in the act of building, sketching two and three dimensional objects, and exploring a variety of current design media and methods. The projects pushed the students to think outside of the box and taught them to create with confidence!

Taking a break from the studio, the students visited The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, The Kimbell Art Museum, and the Marty Leonard Community Chapel in Fort Worth, designed by the internationally known architect, Eunice Fay Jones. Students had the opportunity to tour the chapel and practice their sketching on plexi-glass with the architectural elements of the chapel as their backdrop.

We are proud to say the students leave the camp with a unique design perspective, invaluable friendships and exceptional additions to their college admissions portfolio!

Thank you to those who sponsored a high school student! Want to be involved with Summer@CAPPA next year? Contact us!
