Summer Youth Academy

The Lyme Academy’s Summer Youth Academy features a variety of workshops that are designed to build artistic skills, develop critical thinking strategies, and explore aspects of art history. Students learn the fundamental principles of drawing, painting, and sculpture in a professional studio environment, working independently and collaboratively under the guidance of an exceptional faculty of artists. Our workshops are open to students ages 11-18, and all levels of experience are welcome.

Portfolio Prep

Coming in 2025: Lyme Academy’s Portfolio Prep Program will provide rising, college-bound seniors with the opportunity to create a competitive art portfolio to support their admissions applications. 

Completed portfolios will consist of a minimum of 8 works. Subjects may include: still life, landscape, cast drawing, life/anatomy drawing, figure chiaroscuro, portrait, and gesture drawings. Students will demonstrate the use of at least four mediums (graphite, charcoal, pastel, and oil paint).
