Message from the Director
Immersion in visual arts, performing arts, music, filmmaking, architecture, creative writing, journalism, STEM, and digital arts offers the opportunity to explore your passions and discover yourself.
The Youth and Precollege Programs in the Arts offer intensive enrichment experiences to build confidence that comes with gaining new skills, making new friends with like-minded peers, creating or improving portfolios for college, learning audition techniques, research in the sciences, and working with experienced educators (Purchase faculty in select programs) and teaching artists.
