We are thrilled to reflect on the immense success of our 2023 Pre-College Art Immersion Program that took place June 2023. Last year, we witnessed unprecedented creativity, talent, and passion from the 40 students who enrolled, making it one of our most successful programs.

Highlights of the 2023 program included our immersive art workshops. These workshops covered various artistic disciplines, from 3D animation to jewelry making, printmaking, and 3D paper. Students had the opportunity to learn these new artistic disciplines, gaining invaluable insights and hands-on experience by creating their work.

One of the program's most memorable moments was our end-of-program reception and exhibition. This event showcased the extraordinary artwork made by our students during the program. The exhibition was a testament to our student's hard work, dedication, and creativity, and it was a joy to see their artistry celebrated by their friends and family.
