FAA Summer Intensive
At this college-level program you will become part of a creative community of talented and serious artists from diverse backgrounds. The FAA Summer Intensive provides a perfect platform for high school students (rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors) who want to get a taste of life as a college student and explore the arts. We will be offering Art and Design, Dance, and Theatre tracks.
Discover Architecture introduces high school students to the study of architecture through exposure to the school’s different program areas. Professors introduce the students to their own work, what design thinking is all about, the different skills needed to be successful in architecture, and how each contributes to an overall architectural education. Discover Architecture is focused not only on helping prospective students decide if they want to pursue architecture as a profession but also on giving students new to architecture a look into a unique undergraduate experience.
