Visual Arts: Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, and Sculpture
Similar to the Visual Arts Summer Program, the Visual Arts Saturday Program mirrors The Academy’s Visual Arts Department’s curriculum and will pair teaching traditional techniques with contemporary art making practices. The program will focus developing fundamental skills along with introducing new ways to experiment with different ideas and mediums. Our program’s instruction is highly individualized and projects will be geared and accessible to students of beginning to advanced levels of arts training and experience.
Each session will include exercises in drawing or painting and then students will work on more extensive projects incorporating printmaking, digital design, and sculpture.
Special activities will include a museum visit to discuss and emphasize the connections between students’ projects, art history and contemporary art. The program will culminate in an exhibition of the student work in our department’s galleries.
