Become a design student before you become a design student.
Design Disco’s Summer Program is an intensive 3-week program that immerses high school students in the world of design. Students are exposed to drawing, modeling and representation techniques associated with architectural design as well as alternative design perspectives – landscape, urban planning, graphic, and industrial design. The program strives to foster design skills and put students on track for exploring these ideas at the university level.
