Jumpstart is a summer Precollege Visual and Performing Arts Workshop sponsored by the School of Arts and Communication. The program is designed for young artists, ages 15 to 18, who have demonstrated a heightened interest in the visual and performing arts and seek an opportunity to increase their skills.
Jumpstart provides participants with two weeks of accelerated instruction in a university environment. In addition to the in-class learning experience, student education is supplemented with visiting artist lectures, workshops and excursions. A fundamental goal of Jumpstart is to assist students in the development of a portfolio that can be used to apply to a university or art institute of their choosing. The program concludes with a portfolio and performance review, a final exhibition and an award ceremony.
The 2015 program will be held July 6 through July 17 on Oregon State University’s campus in Corvallis, Oregon. Within the program, students will interact with other art students from around the world as well as a diverse range of college faculty on a daily basis. Class opportunities include Drawing and Modeling the Human Figure, Sculpture, Painting, Printmaking, and Photography.
