Summer Intensives

Build work for a portfolio

July 5-15, 2016
For students entering grades 10-12

Summer Intensives offers high school students who are serious about artmaking, a choice of focused studios to help develop technical skills and build studio practice. Studio choices include a range of disciplines in both fine art and design. Students will have an opportunity to develop work for their portfolio.

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 weekdays. Students may attend morning or afternoon sessions or attend the full day.

For students attending the full day session, lunch is taken independently.

Morning Sessions: 9:00a.m.—12:30p.m.
Afternoon Sessions: 1:30p.m.—5:00p.m.

Registrations are accepted on a space available basis.
