This program will give an immersive college art experience for high school students, where they will receive one-on-one training from TTU faculty in an atmosphere of university instruction. Students can choose one of two experiences: either a general art immersion program or a more focused AP portfolio experience. Within the general art experience, students will have opportunities to use and develop work in many different mediums. They will be given demonstrations and projects that will challenge their ability and open them up to new ways of art making in different mediums. The AP Portfolio experience will be a more focused art experience in which the students will be given time, instruction, and materials to develop their AP portfolios. These students will also be given opportunities to work in many different mediums, and they will have studio time and be mentored by instructors about the works they want to make for their portfolio. 

General art experience students will be automatically signed up for all studio workshops. All of these students must attend the first workshop in each studio area. As the week progresses, if one of the studio areas interests a student more, or if they want to continue working on a project in one area, the student may choose to switch the regularly scheduled workshop to the alternative open studio hours.

AP portfolio students will be encouraged to attend the first workshop for each studio area. Thereafter, they can tailor their schedule according to the needs of their portfolio. Open studio hours will rotate between 2D / 3D / studio hours. Those instructors in the area that are not teaching, will oversee the open studio hours to teach and mentor the AP students. 

The cost of the program is $450 per student, which includes room and board (i.e. cost of dormitory stay and 3 meals per day at the cafeteria). The dorm also has drink and snack machines for student use at all hours of the day. The TTU Pre-College Art Immersion Program is an overnight camp; however, students also have the option of participating as day campers.

We recommend that you select and reserve your preferred week as soon as possible, as we expect the sessions will fill quickly this year.
