Pre-College students experience the exhilaration and prestige of being among other artists on a college campus of a major University. Experienced instructors are practicing professional artists with a wealth of knowledge.

High school students entering grades 9 through 12 are invited to attend. A series of two-week workshops, students can choose to attend 1, 2 or 3 sessions! Students participate in two classes each session, choosing an AM and a PM class from the many Drawing, Painting, Craft, and Digital offerings. 

Beginning artists, as well as those students who have had multiple years of high school art, will find classes to fit their needs. For students planning to apply to an art school, this is an opportunity to acquire work in a variety of media that is suitable for use in a college portfolio. Students are encouraged to express their individual creativity, and upon completing their classes, walk away with a number of finished art pieces.
