This dynamic co-ed, overnight camp is a 5-day intensive course in establishing preparation for applying to art school. The goal of the program is to expose students to observational drawing, an understanding of color and a sound foundation in the vocabulary of art and art related pursuits.

Each student must bring a portfolio for review and will receive constructive advice on how to accomplish the best college application portfolio they can.

Classes are taught by Alfred University faculty. In the evenings, students have lots of fun participating in a variety of recreational activities including indoor and outdoor games, movies, visits to a nearby lake for picnics and campfires, hikes, social gatherings at the coffee house, a farewell party on the last night, and more. Living, dining and learning together, students have a great opportunity to get to know each other and develop lasting friendships. When students are not in class, they are supervised by our wonderful team of Resident Directors and Resident Assistants who serve as camp counselors, mentors, positive role models and friends.

Housing is provided in secure university residence halls dedicated to summer campers. Delicious, all-you-can-eat, cafeteria-style meals are served in the campus dining hall. Our Dining Services chefs do an excellent job in accommodating campers with food allergies and other special requirements.

This program is open to students entering their junior or senior year of high school who wish to continue their education at a top art school. The program fee covers tuition, supervision, materials, room and board from dinner on the first day through lunch on the last day, and recreational activities.

Alfred University is located in the peaceful village of Alfred in western New York State, where summer days are warm and nights are cool and comfortable. Surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful meadows and valleys, Alfred University is the perfect place to spend an enjoyable week learning more about your favorite subject and meeting other students who share your interests. Please visit our website for further information and an application form. Applications are due April 15th. With our dynamic, engaging, talented and caring faculty; terrific facilities; and lovely surroundings, ...could make this your best summer ever!
