Summer Art Intensive
The Cooper Union Summer Art Intensive helps high school students prepare a portfolio for college applications, worthy of top undergraduate programs. Participants choose a three day studio concentration, devoting the rest of the week to intensive drawing instruction and the study of contemporary art issues. A faculty of professional working artists teach all portfolio preparation classes. A mix of local, out-of-town and international students will engage with the vast cultural resources of New York City through visits to major museums and gallery districts. Guest Artists in Residence offer a close-up view of professional practice in action. The program culminates with a student exhibition, a publication of art and writings, and a public animation screening with a reception in Cooper’s Great Hall.
