ADSA students will hear lectures on diverse topics in architecture and design, take field trips, and enjoy a Rail Runner excursion from each city to the other, to explore the contrasting urban design in Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

Teens will have the opportunity to study with four different instructors during each two-week session, and will get feedback on their work from local professionals and community leaders during a final review on the last Friday of each session. In September, a public exhibition at UNM's George Pearl Hall will showcase student work produced at ADSA.

UNM follows COVID-19 protocols based on State and University mandates.

Cost: $300 for two-weeks in Albuquerque or Santa Fe

Deposit $150, fully refundable until start of Session.
