TTU ART PRE College Immersion Program 2018Summer Program 2018

The TTU ART PRE-College Immersion Program 2018 is an intensive, five-day academic program for high school students that will provide an immersive experience in two- and three-dimensional art. As they rotate through classes in various media, students will collaborate to mount an exhibition at the end of the week. They will learn the fundamentals of innovative artmaking and curatorship. The program is geared towards giving students a taste of a rewarding, lifelong career in the arts through this hands-on program with engaged, committed faculty.

AP art students are also invited to come develop their portfolios. Studio time, instructors, and facilities will be available to mentor students, critique artwork, and help students to make a terrific AP portfolio. We will not be able to accommodate every art process, so be sure to let us know what you are working on when writing your application.

Sign up for one of the two separate sessions: either on June 11-15, 2018 or June 18-22, 2018. Both of these sessions will be for high school-aged students interested in developing their skills in the arts. The students will stay in a dormitory on campus; classes will take place from 9:00am to 5:00pm, and there will be activities in the evenings. Parents and friends are invited to an exhibition at the end of each week, beginning on Friday at 5:30pm, at the School of Art's 3D Annex building.

The cost of the program is $350 per student. The fee includes room and board (i.e. cost of dormitory stay and 3 meals per day at the cafeteria). The dorm has drink and snack machines for student use at all hours of the day.

A limited number of partial scholarships are being offered. If you are interested in applying for one of these scholarships, please have the applicant write a one-page letter, stating why you are interested in attending the PRE-College Immersion Program, and include the letter along with your application.
