Middle School Academy

The Middle School Academy, or “Apprentice Program,” offers students ages 11-13 week-long workshops concentrating on a significant artist in history.  In the summer of 2022, students look to Edgar Degas, Sandro Botticelli and Georgia O’Keeffe for inspiration, creating original works that reflected the qualities specific to each master. The Apprentice program is a fun, hands-on opportunity to work in a professional artist’s studio, while learning about iconic artists and art movements.
