Summer Art Studio: Summer 2020 Dates TBA
Rising 9th – 12th Grade

This program is for rising 9th - 12th grade students who have an interest in ceramics and printmaking. Throughout the week, campers will learn about surface design techniques and hand-building, an ancient pottery-making technique where campers will create forms using their hands and simple tools. They will also try their skills at wheel throwing and learn about barrel or smoke firing their work. In addition to ceramics, campers will also experiment with colorful and expressive printmaking techniques to make progressively complex images through layering. Campers will then compose and construct artist books to present the images they made. Camp will take place in Biggin Hall and the 3D Arts Building where campers will receive instruction that will jump-start and expand their art making abilities.


Campers will reside in the Hill Dormitories or the Quad dorms. They are designed in suites consisting of two double-occupancy rooms connected by a bathroom.


Campers will have various meal options for breakfast and lunch in The Student Center. Dinner is held in The Terrell Dining facility, where they have unlimited options of a buffet-style meal.


The Department of Art and Art History is housed in Biggin Hall.
