Summer Intensives

About our Summer Intensives

Our Summer Intensive programs provide teens with opportunities to advance their skills in contemporary art, drawing and painting, architecture, and more.

Programs

Drawing & Painting

Create original work with technique and passion. In the Drawing and Painting Intensive, artist-instructors guide students in independent research into artists and history. From that, inspiration and knowledge informs original works. Investigate the ideas of your work, all while refining fundamental skills in your visual art practice, including composition, design, and colour theory. In conversation with your peers, the art of constructive critique is also explored and practiced.

Clay Sculpture

In this half day, three week intensive, artist-instructors guide students in producing three-dimensional clay works inspired by influential clay artists and the world around them. Students will be encouraged to explore and refine their visual arts practices, looking to traditional and contemporary techniques, ceramic design, and more. Students also learn to critique work through group discussion and self-reflection. The program completes with a showcase in Arts Umbrella’s building upon completion of the course.
