2018 summer Studio Intensives announced

VCFA’s tuition-free, summer program for middle and high school-aged students returns this year. This is for any and all students interested in visual and media arts. 

MAT CampVCFA will offer Art & Design Studio Intensives beginning this July to rising students in grades eight through 12. 

The summer Studio Intensives are geared toward any middle school or high school student interested in developing a creative portfolio, learning new techniques, and exploring ways to express personal and social visions. Emphasis in both Intensives is on experimentation, personal expression and developing conceptual content. Enrollment is application based, and capped at 15 students per studio. Students apply by submitting a digital portfolio, a letter of interest and contact information for their art teacher for a recommendation. 

Application links are on our website: vcfa.edu/intensives
