Course Descriptions

Rising 8th – 9th grade students will PARTICIPATE IN TWO OF THE FOLLOWING STUDIO 345 CLASSES, PROVIDING AN OVERVIEW OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR PROGRAM.

Music & Podcasting: Studio 345 summer participants will be introduced the fundamentals of singing and songwriting. With the help of teaching artists and complimentary state-of-the-art technology, these young creative artists will learn how to transform ideas into original songs using Garageband. The podcasting portion of the summer program is designed to provide students an audio outlet to express their views on music through the medium of podcasting. We’ll discuss topics that relate to their craft.

Visual Art: Get creative experimenting with various materials to create original works of art. A few of the projects students encounter during this studio course include painting, drawing, collaging, bookmaking and computer graphics.

Photo & Film: Over the summer, participants will be introduced to the art of photography and filmmaking. The studio will divide the six week program teaching photography the first three weeks culminating with film lessons. Using Canon DSLRs for both lessons students will learn techniques that include studio and natural lighting, set placement, and stop motion photography. Students will also recreate their favorite movie scenes as their final project. Come join us in learning the magic behind the lens.

Digital Art: In Digital Art/Graphic Design, students learn how to use state-of-the-art design programs, such as Photoshop, InDesign and Adobe Illustrator, that will help them transform graphics into visual concepts that exhibit their personal voice and creativity.

 

Rising 10th – 12th grade students will BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN TWO STUDIO CLASSES DURING THE SUMMER PROGRAM.
