Discover and Explore your Passion – Annual High School Special Event Series


For-the-Love-of-Art-logo

Adelphi faculty members will help mold artistic minds as students participate in one of our 10-week- long Art Foundations, Ceramics, or Graphic Design art intensives. Each session offers students three hours of studio time each week during which they will focus on either drawing, graphic design, or sculpting. The conclusion of each intensive is marked by a reception with an exhibit featuring student work.

For the Love of Art Fall intensives are open to both High School Juniors and Seniors. Spring intensives are exclusive to High School Juniors.

Art Foundations: An intensive in drawing the nude figure, taught by accomplished figurative artists, graduates of the academic tradition taught at the New York Academy of Art and Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and Adelphi University, offers high school juniors and seniors a chance to expand their skills while building their portfolios.

Ceramics: This intensive presents clay projects exploring beginning techniques and concepts for green, clean ceramic sculpture using coil building, pinch forms, slab, glaze and mixed media applications. Students will create ceramic works based on their relationship to contemporary culture, nature, and fantasy worlds.

Graphic Design: Students will use state of the art digital applications to dive into the exciting world of Graphic Design; creating posters, logos, designs and promotional materials for a variety of uses. The intensive will introduce students to the wide world of visual communication and the broad uses of Graphic Design in the contemporary world.

Reception: Tuesday, May 16, 2017
