Summer 2016 Youth Programs in the Arts:
Young Artists (Updated!)

Grades 4–9

Young Artists

Typical Day

Location: Visual Arts Bldg., Room 1018

Young Artists uses the permanent and special exhibitions in the Neuberger Museum of Art—among the 10 largest university museums in the country—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. Students visit the museum at least twice per week to study contemporary artists, their art, and their techniques. Grouped by age and in small classes, they are then inspired to use drawing and painting, sculpture, collage, and crafts to discover and express their creativity.

This program’s art making 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 specifically geared to the demands of design and art making.

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