Summer of Art is designed to provide you with a comprehensive art immersion experience.
Drawing Studio Courses help develop and strengthen eye-hand coordination and drawing skills. Specialization Courses deepen skills and confidence in a specific area of artistic study. While it is optimal to take both courses for the full 5-day experience, we also offer 2-day, and 3-day options for students who cannot attend the 5-day experience.
Check-in and Orientation is July 1 from 8:00am – 1:00pm. All 5-day, 3-day, and 2-day students are required to attend.
Summer of Art classes meet Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 4:20pm (no class July 4th). Outside assignments supplement all in-class coursework.
