The junior visual arts program is a great opportunity for younger artists to develop creativity and fundamental art skills. You will live and learn with other students from all over the world, as you study different techniques and media.
Students in the Junior Visual Arts Program participate in a minimum of four hours of visual arts studio instruction per day. They may choose from a combination of one and two hour courses, with the opportunity to take a one hour elective in another arts area. If students would like to continue studying the same medium through multiple sessions, they will participate in a progressive curriculum.
After enrollment, you will choose two of the following two-hour studios:
One Hour Electives
Explore clay as a medium of expression. In ceramics class, you'll learn basic skills and the creative aspects of working with clay in a variety of hand-building techniques.
Drawing and Painting
This class will introduce a variety of media and techniques. You will have the opportunity to work from observation, and explore your own personal expression.
In this introduction to printmaking, you'll develop your drawing skills and explore a variety of printmaking processes, such as etching, linocut printing, rubber stamping, and monoprinting.
You will be introduced to the basics of digital photography. Learn how to operate a basic digital camera, and how to transfer to the images to a Mac computer for organization and editing. Experimentation, composition, lighting, and subject matter will be discussed throughout the course. Digital cameras will be provided to use during class, but students must bring their own portable storage device (such as a thumb drive).
The two-week session culminates with a public exhibition of student work.
