2016 Summer Art Camp


"If you're considering it, just do it. It's so much fun, and you learn so much."

If you are a high school student with a strong interest in the visual arts, SoVA’s Summer Art Camp is for you.

The camp, Portfolio Thinking, will take place June 25 - 30, 2017 at the University Park campus. Open to students entering grades 9 through 12 (and just-graduated seniors). The camp will provide an intensive residential studio workshop program across various art media.

SoVA recognizes that not all students with an interest in attending the camp can afford to participate. To help address this we are offering a small number of partial and full-tuition scholarships. You should include a recommendation from your high school art teacher when submitting your application. Click here to download application form.

Priority will be given to applications received by April 1, 2017.
