The Summer Arts Workshop is an intensive studio workshop for 9th- to 12th-grade students interested in developing their skills as artists and finding new ways to express their points of view. Students will work with professional artists and teachers from the Department of Visual Arts, as well as talented BYU art students through hands-on instruction in master classes.

Students throughout beginning, intermediate and ready-to-graduate levels will draw, paint, work with mixed media and explore ceramic processes. They will receive one-on-one feedback and instruction tailored to their skill levels and ideas. This workshop is for seasoned high school artists who want to develop their skills

Students will also visit selected exhibits at the Museum of Art, tour the Department of Visual Arts and spend time outside doing “plein air” painting. At the end of the week an art show will be held to display the students’ work and celebrate with parents and friends.
