The Art Effect’s Summer Art Institute (SAI) is for artistically motivated teens ages 14-19 to develop their creativity and build skills that prepare them for advanced study and careers in the visual arts. This summer will be taught by Rick Price, Director of the Summer Art Institute, and the focus will be drawing and painting. All in-person programs will adhere to State and County protocols to ensure a safe and fun experience for all. The in-person class maximum size is 10 people.
For those unable to join us in person, you can join SAI virtually! “Zoom-in” students will receive remote access to in-person classroom sessions and will participate fully in class activities, assignments, and discussions. “Zoom-in” students will also receive daily one-on-one check-ins with the SAI instructor. This program will also feature several virtual visits from art college representatives.
Speciality supplies are included, but SAI students are encouraged to purchase their own supplies. Supply list will be shared after registration.
