Junior Art Institute

The Junior Art Institute

A program for arts-interested students ages 11-14.

This innovative program is designed to give students the opportunity to explore digital illustration, digital photography, drawing, painting, filmmaking, and/or mixed media. This program will help define their creative direction in preparation for more advanced visual arts instruction in high school and beyond. We explore the depth of shape, color, line, texture, space and movement.

The Art Effect will not be offering JAI programming this summer, but we are offering the Summer Intermediate Arts Program.
Take your love of art to the next level in this brand-new program for ages 11-13! This new program for middle school-aged students combines the fun and artistic exploration of Dutchess Arts Camp with the skills-building of our traditional Junior Art Institute. Young artists will discover the power of creative self-expression while learning new skills in painting portraits and landscapes, creating 3-D sculptures, and experimenting with mixed media. Projects will be adaptable to the level and interest of each individual student.
