Course Overview Summer of Art is designed to provide you with a comprehensive art immersion experience. Foundation Studio drawing courses help develop and strenghthen eye/hand coordination and drawing skills. Specialization courses deepen skills and confidence in a specific area of artistic study. For the full experience, we recommend the full 5-day program but also offer 2- and 3-day options.
Day One: Exploring Creativity- A full day dedicated to expanding each student's imagination kicks off the program. You'll discover innovative approaches to creative challenges in a supportive environment, while getting to know the Summer of Art community.
Foundation Studios- The fundamental skills of all art and design disciplines, whether in fashion, painting, photography, or digital media, are rooted in observational drawing. Foundation courses mirror Otis BFA's first year. Get a head start in furthering your art and design education at the college level by spending two days per week in an observational drawing studio.
Specialization Courses- Choose one Specialization Course for in-depth exploration in a specific field of art. Specializations are designed to give you a robust, comprehensive experience.
Summer of Art classes meet Monday and Friday, 9:00am to 4:20pm. Outside assignments supplement all in-class coursework.
