About the School of Visual Arts
The School of Visual Arts wants you to experience life as a working artist next summer. This New York State Summer School of the Arts program is specifically designed to emphasize art experiences that cannot normally be undertaken during a 45-minute school period. You will work in the studio with drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media, figure, and interdisciplinary arts under the direction of noted exhibiting artists/educators. Related activities will include drawing and painting from a live model, trips to farms and lakes in the area, and experience with art processes that include welding, casting, direct carving, modeling life-size objects in clay, and experimenting with a variety of printmaking techniques.
In addition to pursuing direct art processes, you will have the unique opportunity to work and live with 95 other student artists on an attractive college campus. Here, you will be able to establish career goals in the process of sharing this rewarding precollege program. Because of the in-depth experience and number of class hours this program provides, students will be fulfilling the requirements for one full unit of high school credit. Appropriate documentation is sent at the close of the program.
Studio and residential spaces are provided at SUNY Fredonia, a public comprehensive college offering a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate programs, including a BFA in Art with concentrations in areas such as sculpture, animation/illustration, ceramics, drawing/painting, graphic design, media arts and photography.
