The two-week, in-person program is open to current high school sophomores and juniors who are interested in art and design. The program showcases how the university works across disciplines and includes open studios in the areas of ceramics, photography, painting/drawing, maker lab and graphic design. Several field trips to area museums and galleries are also included in the experience.
Throughout the program, participants will work with art school faculty and staff to create a personal narrative while gaining a better understanding of the art and design school. Participants’ final work will be shown in an exhibition in Folk Hall on the final day that is open to family and friends.
The program is scheduled for June 13-24 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. To apply, students should submit the following three items:
