The Summer Studio Art Program
Creative thought is fundamental to all that takes place in Skidmore’s classrooms, performance spaces, and art studios throughout the year, particularly during the summer.
For creative artists, the Summer Studio Art Program provides in-depth studio and classroom opportunities. The program features guest artist lectures, brown-bag lunches, and panel discussions. Program participants include gifted high school students, studio art teachers, and college and graduate students who share a common goal: they are serious about developing their skills and broadening their art experiences.
Programming in both the Saisselin Art Building and the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery serves to inform and inspire students. The Schick Art Gallery is currently featuring an exhibition of work by printmaker/book artist Michael Kuch, and the Tang has three current exhibitions: “For You,” through Aug. 22, “Elevator Music 16: Head Rhythm 1 and Plaything 2, 1999,” through Sept. 19, and “Opener 19: Los Carpinteros,” through Aug. 7.
This summer will see the return of “Art-A-Rama Week,” which investigates nature’s role as artists’ muse in a series of activities scheduled July 12-16. Many “Art-A-Rama” events are free and open to the public, including the following:
Visit. Enjoy. Be inspired.
