I am raising money for my daughter, Kaitlyn Olivia Francis, to spend a week at a camp that will put her well on her way to her goals in college. She has been selected to go to the college of her choice and attend a DAAP camp for future arcitectual and intern design students. At this camp, she will learn from faculty at a top-ranked design college. Expand your skills through interactive studios. Use your hands, your brain, and your imagination. Get advice from professional artists and designers. Become a part of an art and design community. Enhance your portfolio. Pursue the career of your dreams. Make things. Have fun.
The College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) at the University of Cincinnati is a world-renown, prestigiously ranked design school, which successfully combines the benefits of a selective art school with the resources of a research university. Through its award-winning contemporary buildings and landscape design, the University of Cincinnati campus exudes a commitment to design. And the college’s active, interdisciplinary approach to education has cemented its reputation as one of the finest art and design schools in the world.
During DAAP’s week-long high school camps, running June 22-28, students experience first-hand the excitement and expectations of our academic programs by working on studio design projects with skilled and talented faculty from one of the world’s finest art and design schools. These camps allow students with the chance to experience their design passions, college-life, and career options in a pre-college residency camp.
Please help me send her off to experience what some never get to, a chance to be a better, stronger, and more educated young black woman! Thank you for all of your support!
