In this two-week NASAD and New York State accredited intensive studio arts course, students will have the opportunity to expand and/or launch their understanding of a variety of 2D art-making methodologies expected in a successful university-level portfolio submission. This course encourages participants to explore unfamiliar processes that develop life-long creative confidence and enriches a broad approach to making art.

This course is based in the School of Art and students will have access to many of the extraordinary facilities within the College of Visual and Performing Arts at SU and work amidst some of our most celebrated faculty. Students will create in a vibrant college environment will receive a bona fide taste of what it is like to pursue an art-based career. Participation in a studio culture of idea generation, material exploration, process experimentation, collaboration, artist research, and critique is standard in all SU: VPA School of Art courses including this offering to high school students who are looking to ‘get ahead”.

This program is limited to 18 students.

In addition to developing a personal style and approach to art making, participants will get an introduction to a selection of artists, including a guest faculty member, and slide presentations of their professional practice. These practices provide an immersive and well-rounded understanding of the breadth and depth of the profession. The class will also take at least one field trip to the SUArt Gallery Print collection, which houses thousands of works on paper from Rembrandt to Warhol.

At the end of this two-week session, students will collaborate in curating a group exhibition in the Sarah A. Coyne Gallery of Art in ComArt and participate in a group critique enabling an experience in the foundation of critical dialogue. Students that successfully complete this course for one-credit can apply the credit toward their BFA degree in the School of Art at Syracuse University.
