Summer Institute : One-week Intensives

CONCENTRATE. Studio-intensive courses help develop your personal vision and build your skills in a particular subject while giving you a taste of the University of the Arts. One-week Intensives are non-credit.

The Goods
UArts Pre-College Summer Institute offers One-week Intensives for high school students in the Philadelphia area. Choose one, two, three or four weeks of study. You will participate in a full day of classes where you focus on the concentration of your choice from 10 am – 4 pm, with a break for lunch. One-week Intensives give you the opportunity to refine your skills in a favorite medium or experiment with something out of your comfort zone. This program is for rising 9th-12th graders and is a good way to investigate future study at the University of the Arts—whether Pre-College Saturday School, Summer Institute or an undergraduate program.

To register submit a completed registration form or call 215-717-6006.

The Takeaway
You will emerge from each one-week program with new skills, a new vocabulary for your area of interest, and increased confidence as an artist and problem solver - in addition to portfolio or audition pieces for college admissions.

Note: Applicants must send full payment of $560/week with their Registration Form. No scholarships are available for One-week Intensives.
