Course Descriptions

Rising 8th – 9th grade students will BE EXPOSED TO STUDIO 345 CLASSES, WHICH WILL GIVE THEM AN OVERVIEW OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR PROGRAM

 

Music & Podcasting for 8th and 9th Grade students: 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. 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.

Photo & Film for 8th and 9th Grade students: 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 and culminating with film lessons for the final three weeks. Using Canon DSLRs for both art forms, students will learn techniques that include studio and natural lighting, set placement, and stop motion photography. Come join us in learning the magic behind the lens.

 

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

This summer at Studio 345 students will learn about the relationships between art and science. Whether exploring sound waves in music, learning the chemistry behind photography, or finding inspiration from nature, participants will see how their creativity can be linked to science. Rising 10th through 12th grade students will choose two classes from Photography, Digital Art, Environmental Art, Film, Public Art, and Music/Podcasting.
