Summer Courses
Studio Foundation: An introduction to basic visual art concepts, exploring a range of materials with emphasis on experimentation and analysis of visual relationships. Drawing is a vital part of this course.

3D Foundation: This is an extensive study in form and structure to develop spatial understanding and the fundamentals of 3-dimensional design and construction. Students will explore the structural, compositional and conceptual implications of basic materials, such as wood, metal, plaster and found objects. Projects are designed as a means for investigating a variety of sculptural processes. Students will learn casting techniques, safe use of power tools and welding equipment. In addition special emphasis will be placed on creativity, critical thinking and the ability to successfully articulate ideas visually.
