Digital Design for Teens teaches valuable design skills to high school students. Though many high-schools teach similar courses, the Washington Architectural Foundation provides introductory education on digital drawing and 3D modeling for architectural, interior design, landscape architecture, civil and mechanical engineering purposes. Students will learn simple techniques they can practice outside of the classroom and apply in internship and educational opportunities. Digital Design for Teens is an excellent asset for any college applicant or job-seeker to have on their resume, and provides insight into the work involved in a modern design career.

Join us for the summer edition of Digital Design for Teens. Students will develop design skills using SketchUp. 

July 21 & July 28, 2021 (2 sessions)


(Please note: the recommended age for Digital Design for Teens is 14-18)
