Pre-College Summer Academy
The Pre-College Academy Program for students ages 14-18 offers beginning- to advanced-level art instruction through a variety of focused workshops. Most workshops run 9 am to 3 pm, Monday through Friday. Three- or five-day workshops are offered.
Each week-long workshop includes an overview or introduction, skill assessment, and a designated project. All workshops are designed to build student knowledge and a portfolio of work over time. The workshops are tailored to individual learning and may be repeated in order to further advance a student’s skill-set and abilities. Critical thinking and assessment and appraisal skills are among the proven benefits that the PCA Program offers to this age group, as it creates stronger, more prepared artists.
All workshops are located in the Lyme Academy’s Chandler Building, with access to the campus’s outdoor spaces also provided.
Please note that for the safety of all students, open-toed shoes are prohibited.
