For ages 14 – 19

This art immersion program is designed to help develop students’ ideas and build skills in the visual and digital arts. The curriculum in the Summer Art Institute is a summer intensive course which is part of the year-round Art Institute. SAI gives students a strong foundation for their visual art education and provides a sequence of techniques to advance student portfolios. We explore the depth of shape, color, line, texture, space and movement as well as the importance of both realism and conceptualism to help students develop scholarship-level portfolios.

Students can choose between three majors:

  • Drawing & Painting – Intermediate artists ready to begin their journey in portfolio development will receive guidance in what colleges look for in a strong portfolio and how to begin to develop pieces with foundational techniques using various paints, inks, charcoals, pastels, and more.
  • Digital Art & Illustration – Intermediate and advanced digital artists will focus on broadening your knowledge about digital tools, resources, and programs to take your work to the next level. Utilize these skills to create stunning original digital illustrations, paintings, animations, and photo manipulations. 
  • Advanced Drawing & Painting – Advanced level, dedicated students ready to strengthen their artistic knowledge will dive deeper into advanced artistic techniques, practices, and principals. Expand your skills and portray how you see the world using various paints, ink, charcoals, pastels, and more. Advanced Drawing and Painting students will receive a portfolio review from esteemed colleges and learn about the programs they offer.
