Creative Vacation

Summer art programs for grades 7-9

July 10-21, 2017

Creative Vacation is for students of all abilities who have a desire to expand their knowledge in the visual arts. It is a fun but rigorous program for young artists to develop their creative voice and skills in disciplines they love, including painting, sculpture, fashion, architecture, computer animation, and more.

Through daily art classes, visits to nearby museums and studios, and meetings with visiting artists, students learn about making a connection between their own artwork and the world around them.

Students may attend Creative Vacation at MassArt for the full day or for mornings or afternoons only. Classes take place Monday through Friday. Morning sessions run from 8:30a.m. to 12:00p.m., and afternoon sessions run from 1:00p.m. to 4:30p.m.

Final Friday and Student Exhibition

The final Friday morning session is open to all students in the program from morning and afternoon sessions. Special activities are designed for the morning instead of regular morning and afternoon classes.

From 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., family and friends are invited to attend the final student exhibition. This celebratory event includes an exhibition of 2D and 3D works and presentations of certificates. Creative Vacation ends at the conclusion of the exhibition.
