The Summer Art Institute is designed for talented and highly motivated high school students. Each two-week session carries three units of UCLA college credit, and is structured around a combination of daily, focused studio work, artist lectures, field trips, and a final exhibition.
Students may enroll in one, or both, two-week sessions, and choose from Drawing, Painting, Photography, or Sculpture.
Led by recent UCLA Master of Fine Arts graduates, the Summer Art Institute curriculum encourages students to explore and expand their creative work and develop their artistic vocabularies. Institute activities are scheduled 9am to 5:30pm, Monday through Friday.
Students should expect an intensive two weeks of immersive studio instruction and come prepared to work hard. The low student-to-teacher ratio ensures individualized attention and thought-provoking discussion.
