3-Week Session: July 3-22, 2016
This intensive studio course introduces aspiring artists to the language of visual arts through an interdisciplinary study in drawing as a core class in the morning and a choice of painting, photography or graphic design as a secondary elective in the afternoon. Students will develop technical and perceptual skills that are the foundation of visual expression. Participants will hone their artistic creative skills as they prepare a portfolio for presentation to an admissions committee.
Students in this course will be required to pay an additional lab/supply fee of $90.
