Summer Discovery Art Program 2014



The Texas Tech University School of Art is organizing its first Summer Discovery Art Program this June 2014. It is a non-residential summer program designed to offer middle and high school students a taste of a college art degree. A 5-day immersive experience, students will learn to think and make art in a holistic way, experiment with a variety of two- and three-dimensional and time-based media to test the limits of creative expression, and collaborate with fellow students to install an exhibition at the end of the week.

The Program will take place between June 16-20, 2014 (for middle school students), and June 23-27, 2014 (for high school students). The Program will begin daily at 9am and end at 5pm. Students who would like to participate, but do not reside in Lubbock, are encouraged to stay with a relative or friend in the city for the duration of the Program.

The cost of the Program per student is $200. Lunches will be provided, and the fee will cover the purchase of art supplies and instructor fees. Students will need to make a $50 deposit (payable to "TTU School of Art") to secure their place in the Program. Applicants are encouraged to register by May 25, 2014 - enrollment is limited, so sign up immediately!
