UCLA's Teen ArchStudio is designed for exceptionally talented and motivated high school students, grades 9-12. Two tracks are offered, one lasting two weeks and the other is an advanced track lasting three weeks and offers young artists an opportunity to earn two to three units of UCLA college credit. Curriculum is created and supervised by the internationally recognized UCLA Department of Architecture and Urban Design faculty. Participants are exposed to the architectural profession through hands-on studio and lab work, field trips to prominent buildings and Los Angeles area architectural offices, led by recent UCLA Master of Fine Arts graduates, members of UCLA faculty, or by visiting artists. The program helps students consider academic pathways in architecture or other areas of design.
