UNL Camp for High School Students June 14-19, 2015
Richard Sutton is a naturalist and was involved in Fall Conference at Aurora last weekend. He asked us to share this information with you.
Landscape Architecture is “the art and practice of designing the outdoor environment”. Landscape Architects collaborate with communities, architects, and engineers to design campuses, parks, gardens, cities, and large-scale land planning projects. To learn more about the profession, visit the website of the American Society of Landscape Architects at www.asla.org. This workshop, developed for high school students interested in Landscape Architecture, provides a unique experience to explore issues surrounding the field. The workshop provides learning opportunities in the form of design studio exploration, seminars and discussions, field trips and film presentations. The central focus of the workshop is a design studio where design issues are explored and creative energies are nurtured. As part of the workshop, students will visit professional offices, learn about various career opportunities, and develop fundamental skills necessary for the study of design. Deadline to apply April 6, 2015
NEBRASKANS FOR THE ARTS VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS HONOR
Each month, Nebraskans for the Arts will honor a Nebraska student who has made outstanding achievements in the Visual and Performing Arts. Nomination of students can only be made by Nebraskans for the Arts members, upon the recommendation of teachers or school administrators.
Nebraskans for the Arts believes that student participation in high quality arts education contributes to overall higher student achievement, student engagement, critical thinking skills, and problem solving. Research from The Search Institute and Gallup supports the role of the arts in a positive school climate, hopefulness of students, and strong asset building. We believe the arts are essential and want to honor students who demonstrate both talent and the positive impact of the arts on their lives and the decisions they make.
To increase recognition of our honorees, students will be showcased individually on the website: www.nebraskansforthearts.org. The student will receive a certificate of recognition, and the student’s school principal, superintendent and state senator will be notified in hopes of increasing awareness of the importance of these students’ achievements and talents.
TO NOMINATE A STUDENT: complete the Nomination Form.
If you have questions, please e-mail the Nebraskans for the Arts Executive Director, Doug Zbylut, or reach him by phone at 402.595.2125.
I wanted to share information with you regarding the College of Architecture Senior Open House at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Every year the College of Architecture holds a senior open house for students who may have an interest in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, or Interior Design. This fall our open house will be on Friday, October 10, 2014.
High school seniors will have the opportunity to learn about our academic programs in Architecture, Interior Design and Landscape Architecture. These majors are ideal for students who have an interest in art, design, outdoors, environmental sustainability, and more! Participants in the open house will have lunch with our faculty and current students, tour the College facilities, and take part in a design activity.
If you have students who have expressed an interest in these professions, would you please share this opportunity with them? Students who wish to attend the open house can register here.
Event registration closes on October 6, 2014. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Kind regards, Leslie Gonzalez
