California by Design: Summer 2017

Study design at NewSchool this summer and work toward earning your certificate in Interior Architecture & Design, Minor in Architecture and Integrative Studies credits! Enroll in ​DES 595-1: California by Design.

Our five-week summer design studio, California by Design, is a great way to gain an initial deep dive into design. Taught by NewSchool faculty, you can explore our campus and meet current students, while learning about design in California.

From surfboards to start ups, the course will explore California’s unique culture and design aesthetic across multiple design disciplines such as product design, architecture and interior design. Students will also explore how design is influenced by California’s history, culture, environment and economic trends.

The five-week summer studio combines lectures, hands-on workshops, field trips, guest speakers and special events.
