NYC Field Trips
During Contemporary Art Issues classes, students will see first hand works of historic, modern and contemporary artwork. Students have visited such institutions such as, The Metropolitan Museum, MoMA, Noguchi Museum, The Met Breuer and The New Museum.
Four artists selected for the Summer Artist in Residency program will be on-campus in their studios for the duration of the Summer Art Intensive. They will be available to talk to students about their careers and the site-specific projects they are creating in the studios. The work of these professional artists will also be presented in the annual summer A.I.R. exhibition.
Exhibition + Animation Screening & Poetry Reading
The Summer Art Intensive will end with a celebratory reception showcasing student works in drawing, graphic design, and digital photography on three floors in the historic Foundation Building. Before the opening reception, parents, teachers and counselors are invited to join the entire Cooper Union Summer Art Intensive community in the Rose Auditorium where the student animation shorts will be screened.
Once the program is completed, student will receive a flash drive containing digital images of their best art work. This will give students a jumpstart in creating a digital portfolio to be used in college applications. Students will also receive an anthology which contains pieces from all students from each concentration along with writing from their writing class. It's a great way to remember their time at the Summer Art Intensive here at The Cooper Union.
