Summer 2015 Youth Programs in the Arts:
Young Artists

Young artist painting

Grades 4–9

Typical Day

Sign in Location: Visual Arts Bldg., Room 1018 

Whether you want to introduce your child to the visual arts for the first time or encourage his or her already-awakened artistic interests, Young Artists is designed to foster creativity and imagination, individuality, and collaboration—and to help boys and girls discover and develop their innate gifts and talents. Our instructors are highly imaginative art educators, dedicated to making art an adventure and a lifelong joy for the young artist. Children, grouped by age and in small classes, use drawing and painting, sculpture, collage, and crafts to discover and express their creativity.

This program is held in the college’s Visual Arts Building—160,000 square feet of art-making opportunity. Our Visual Arts Building is one of the largest facilities of its kind in the Northeast, providing students with superb studio environments, as well as state-of-the-art software and hardware specifically geared to the demands of professional design and art making.

To broaden skills and exposure to the arts, Young Artists can be combined with Young Journalists (new!), Code Breakers and Designers, Minecraft™ Designers and Modders, Creating Comic Books, Young Architects, Young Actors, Shakespeare Workshop, Young Filmmakers, Creative Vocal Lab, and/or Vocal Intensive to make for a well-rounded summer experience.
