The Summer Art Institute was established in 1998 by Carinda Swann to offer high school students artistic opportunities that may not be offered in their school programs. This pre-college program can provide total immersion in the making of art and a way for students to gain valuable skills that can prepare them for a college of the arts or whatever path they choose.
During the program, high school students have a full range of our facilities, enabling the development of creative abilities under the guidance and encouragement of outstanding teaching artists. Provocative discussion with faculty and guest artists and the strong support of risk-taking in a congenial environment give students the freedom to explore their ideas without limitations.
Each young artist advances their skills within a core curriculum with an emphasis on visual literacy and expanding the 21st Century skills—creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking—considered crucial to successful participation in a rigorous working environment.
