We are no longer accepting applications for this summer 2018 program.

During your time here, you will have the opportunity to explore multiple media. After enrollment, you'll chose two two-hour visual art studios, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

You will also choose one elective class from another arts area.

All visual art students participate in the studio seminar, which allows students to choose from a wide range of workshops that they sign up for during the first week of classes. There are also open studio tutorials offered two evenings a week.

At the end of this three-week session, you will exhibit the work you have created throughout the Dow Center for Visual Arts.

If you would like to experience a wider variety of courses, you are welcome to attend both three-week sessions, and will receive a multiple session discount. This program does not require a portfolio for admission. It enrolls on a first-come, first-served basis, so your early application is advised.
