Students at Summer Arts Intensive

Summer Arts Intensive

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our students, staff, faculty and the community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Summer Arts Intensive. Thank you for your interest in the Columbia College Art program and we hope to see you in the near future.

Build upon your artistic skills, learn new techniques and practice thinking creatively. You’ll work with expert art faculty who will provide feedback and input on your work. At the end of the week, display your creations in the Sidney Larsen Gallery. This is a non-residential camp. 

This camp is ideal for students interested in building their artistic skill, receiving valuable input on their work, and learning more about the Columbia art scene. Students will receive quality instruction that blends technique with self-expression in an exciting college environment. For grades 9-12 and 2020 graduates.

June 8-13, 2020

Grades 9-12 and 2020 graduates
