Interdisciplinary Projects Online (Ages 15-18, 1.0 College Credit)

Work with our incredible faculty of artists, designers, and scholars to see your ideas come to life through drawing, sculpture, installation, video, sound, photography, performance, or a combination of media. We will introduce you to new materials and ways of combining disciplines to expand your skills and challenge the way you think about artmaking. The course will include online demonstrations geared to your passions, virtual museum resources, time for self-directed work, and comprehensive faculty advising. You’ll engage in discussions and critiques with a vibrant online community of other students from throughout the country and around the world as you create portfolio-quality work for college admissions to art and design programs.

Students taking this course must be ages 15-18 and in their junior or senior year of high school. Upon successful completion of the course, students are eligible to earn 1.0 college credit.
