During the weeklong Design Camp session held on the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville last week, students and their instructors took one day for a field trip. They visited both Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, which allowed them to experience world-class art and architecture.
“Many have already been to these places, but it’s a different perspective,” said Noah Billig, a Design Camp instructor.

Bria Chatman, a Little Rock native, is a second-year interior design student at the University of Arkansas. She talks about her experience so far in the program, recalls memorable moments, and contemplates her future in the field.
Q: When and why did you first become interested in interior design?
A: I’ve always had an interest in designing, since I was in middle school. However, I didn’t decide that I wanted to design interiors until my junior year in high school. I realized that most people spend their days inside, so why not design something that will be seen every day.
