What is Design Week?

Design Week at Mount Ida: July 24 – July 30, 2016

Mount Ida Design Week is a chance for you and fellow rising junior and senior high school students to get inspired and informed about different career paths in design. Regardless of your design experience, we want you to dive in, explore and enjoy the residential experience of our beautiful New England campus.


Get inspired and informed about career paths in design

Design Week is a fun and focused way to discover if a career in design might be in your future. You will participate in studio classes that will take your design know-how to new levels and meet like-minded peers who enjoy and appreciate design. As importantly, you will design your very own portfolio that you can take home with you. In addition, Design Week offers you opportunities to:

> Use state-of-the-art technology
> Get hands-on studio experience
> Work with leading design instructors
> Experience campus life with new friends

Our School of Design is pulling out all the stops to present you with awesome design workshops, led by our industry-experienced professors. Choose from one of these workshops and pursue your passion for design: Animation, Game Art, Graphic Design, Photography, Fashion Industry Marketing & Management, Fashion Design, and Interior Design.



Design Your Summer

#MountIda #DesignYourSummer

Out of the design studio, you and your fellow high school designers will enjoy all that a private New England college campus has to offer: a picturesque 72-acre suburban college campus in the beautiful and safe community of Newton, MA.


With many of our college students home for the summer, as a Summer Design Week participant, you will get a taste of college in a relaxed and fun environment, living in the residence halls with professional staff, enjoying meals in the dining commons, and exploring our new campus center.

Before you arrive, be sure to follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter. We will be posting news and information about the program before, during and after Design Week using the hashtags: #MountIda #DesignYourSummer.

Be sure to join in on the conversation!
