Summer Art Intensive for Teens
This unique workshop offers teenage artists an opportunity to experience college-level art instruction in an
intimate group setting. We will hold our classes in and around a working studio in Hatfield, MA, by the lush,
inspiring Connecticut River. We will devote our mornings to plein-air painting and drawing of the river lands,
and to the timeless investigation of still life. In the afternoons, we will work indoors from live nude models.
Painters and faculty members David Gloman of Amherst College and Katy Schneider of Smith College will direct
the program and provide all instruction. Teenagers with an interest in either applying to art schools, majoring
in art at a liberal arts college, or simply in developing their skills through focused, sustained effort may
apply for this two-week non-residential program by submitting six jpegs of original work.
