Summer Art Academy

NEW GOAL: We've hit our goal but we're not done yet! Help us reach $2,000 to help two more students attend this year's camp.

Who we are:

The Department of Art, Graphic Design and Art History and the College of Arts & Sciences Outreach.

What we are doing:

The Department of Art, Graphic Design and Art History offers a Summer Art Academy through A&S; Outreach. Enrolled students experience high quality art instruction, and students attend pre-collegiate classes that provide them with an opportunity to experience and apply some of the same concepts and design principles delivered during college lecture and studio art programs.

This takes place under the supervision and instruction of master instructors, all of whom are full time faculty at OSU. Class size is small and classes are held outside the normal school year.

As school budgets face funding cuts, and other subjects vie for student attention, students often have to sacrifice an interest in art in order to pursue other subjects during the school year.

This type of Art Academy allows students to continue to explore creative directions. Students experience college-like instruction, and more importantly, discover valuable career options and degree paths possible within the Visual Arts.

Why we need your support:

Last year, we found many interested students were unable to attend the Summer Art Academy due to financial constraints, as there were no program registration waivers available to help defray expenses. We are determined to change this, but we need your help!

What we’ve done already:

We have applied for grants and we have dropped the registration fees. However, even the lowered registration cost is beyond what some students can afford. We can’t lower the registration fee any further without sacrificing the materials or the time needed to ensure a rewarding experience for the students.

Together, with your support, we can show area students we believe in their ability to transform their lives and make great art. Help us show them that art is important, and that a summer art experience can establish a foundation for a future in art.

How you can help:

DONATE: Any contribution helps us move closer to our goal.

SHARE: Spread the word about this program to your friends and family. Share the information about our progress!
