TTU ART PRE College Immersion Program 2018Summer Program 2020

The TTU ART PRE-College Immersion Program 2020 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 art-making and curatorship. The program offers students an opportunity to work with engaged, committed School of Art faculty, while experiencing all that a career in the arts has to offer them.

AP art students are invited to work with faculty in further developing their portfolios. Studio instructors will be available to mentor students, critique artwork, and help students to make a terrific AP portfolio. So that we may better accommodate the AP students' art-making processes, be sure to let us know what you are working on when writing your application.

This summer, the SOA will offer two individual camp week sessions. Students may elect to sign up for either one:

June 8-12th, 2020
June 15-19th, 2020

Costs and Application

The cost of the program is $450 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.

PLEASE NOTE: The 2020 Summer Art Pre-College Immersion Program is subject to cancellation due to the current COVID-19 pandemic crisis. However, at this time, we are still taking applications for both the program and for merit-based scholarships. No payments should be mailed at this time. All applicants will receive notifications from the School of Art should the program be cancelled. If you have already submitted application fees, we will work with the university for reimbursement in the event the program is cancelled. Should the program continue as planned, you will be contacted by the School of Art for full payment by May 15th unless it is determined you are granted a scholarship.
