The Program:
Due to its popularity, we will be offering this camp in an online, virtual learning format in the summer of 2020!

Exploring Drawing will investigate the broadest definition of what can be called drawing. It will range from the observational to the abstract and is intended for high school students. It will address ways of looking at the world and how to translate them to paper. Our Exploring Drawing camp will help you take large amounts of visual information and simplify it and take the recognizable and make it abstract. I will challenge what materials can be used to make a drawing.

  • If you later choose to apply for admission to Alfred University as an undergraduate student, you will have the admissions application fee waived and will be eligible for an Alfred University VISA scholarship.
