Summer Intensives in Art and Design offers high school students serious about fine art and design the opportunity to develop technical skills, build studio practice, and develop work for their portfolio. Studio choices are available in both fine art and design, and include a number of full-day design and media-focused studios.
Attendance is mandatory in each studio. The nature of this program is that of a rigorous art school. Students are expected to complete homework assignments and engage in individual and group critiques.
The program meets Monday through Friday for two weeks. Students may attend morning or afternoon sessions or attend for the full day. For students attending the full day session, lunch is taken independently. For rising 11th and 12th grade students attending Summer Intensives for the full day, a residential option is available on a space available basis.
Who Should Apply:
• Students interested in pursuing the arts
• Students seeking to develop their portfolios
• Students wanting access to art materials and equipment rarely available to pre–college students
• Students wanting to study the arts in the unique atmosphere of a college for the visual arts
