Summer Drawing Program

This fun but intensive drawing course offers high school students a college level art experience. The SDP boosts students' portfolios, and allows one-on-one time with top art professors and interaction with art students from area schools. To apply, students must submit a digital application by Friday, May 10. Thanks to special funding, this program is offered at $50 per student. 

Students will supply their own newsprint pad and portfolio; all other supplies are provided.
