The Summer Pre-College Program at the Institute of Art and Design at New England College is one of the highlights of the year for faculty and staff because of the significant positive impact it has on young artists.  Given the current health crisis, we have considered a variety of online program formats that will enable pre-college students to enhance their development as artists, and engage with like-minded peers and faculty members.

This summer, the Institute is offering a flexible Pre-College program that students can participate in at their chosen pace and duration – students can take just one class that meets twice a week for three weeks, or take up to four classes over six weeks.  The details of the program are below.  When you’re ready, click here to register.

 

Dates and Times:

  • Session I: July 6 – 23
  • Session II: July 27 – August 13
  • Courses run Monday & Wednesday (M/W) or Tuesday & Thursday (T/TH), from 10AM – 12PM

Format of Instruction

  • Courses offered via Zoom in a “live” format (in real time);
  • Faculty are practicing artists and established instructors, experienced with the Pre-college age group, and have successfully offered highly engaging online instruction;
  • 10 students per class;
  • Assignments will be given for work outside of class – one to two times the number of hours of instruction for maximum benefit;
  • Courses are non-credit

Goals of the Pre-College Program

  • Help students develop their personal artistic practices to inspire their creativity
  • Promote problem solving and thinking outside the box
  • Assist students in building their portfolio
