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

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.

We recommend that you select and reserve your preferred week as soon as possible. Based on enrollment numbers from last summer, it is expected the sessions will fill quickly this year.
