Junior Art Intensive

The Junior Art Intensive 2022 is scheduled to run on campus July 18-29, 2022, Monday through Friday, from 9am-4pm (Pacific Daylight Time, GMT -7).

In this two-week program, creative youth aged 13-15 explore 2D and 3D art-making. Working with professional art instructors in a focused workshop environment, students will complete a variety of projects in drawing, painting, animation and soft sculpture. Sketching and an examination of the creative process will complement hands-on learning to create an engaging and accessible art experience for creative youth of all backgrounds.

The Junior Art Intensive builds foundational knowledge while emphasizing skill development and the creative process and helps prepare students for our Summer Institute for Teens. The program culminates with a public exhibition of student work in Emily Carr’s Michael O’Brian Exhibition Commons.

What students say about the program:

“I enjoyed the company of others with the same interests as me, as well as learning new things about art!”

"The teachers were very welcoming, and gave me useful feedback to reflect and improve upon. I also gained new skills and confidence”

"My instructors were great. They did an incredible job of maintaining a positive environment online and they were very helpful”

“I liked that we didn't spend all the time on the computer and really got to express and put ourselves into our artwork"
