As an extension of the ARTworks middle school program, we launched Summer School in July 2014. This free, intensive program provides 7th and 8th grade students* from across New York City the opportunity to practice observational drawing and painting techniques, and prepare artwork for their portfolios, which are required for admission to specialized arts high schools. Weekly visits to art galleries and museums serve as inspiration for the students, while they develop their craft.

This program is provided free of charge and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The class fills quickly so you are advised to apply early once registration has begun. 

Registration is now closed for Summer School 2015
If you would like to be on the mailing list for Summer School 2016, please contact Shona Masarin-Hurst, Programs Manager: Please write “Summer Program Registration” in the subject line; or call (212) 206-3583.

*Please note, only students in 7th and 8th grade at the time of registration (Spring, 2015) are eligible to apply.
