Summer Institute Residency: Courses

We are committed to nurturing the creative development of artists, designers, and scholars and we will continue to be diligent in considering student safety, the health of our campus community, and the well-being of our shared society. 

With this in mind, we are continuing to monitor health guidelines and will confirm in May 2021 if on-campus Early College Program Summer Institute courses will take place. At that time, if you are currently enrolled ECPOSI online program and you wish to convert to an on-campus course, we will work with you to make an enrollment change.

On-Campus courses announced in May 2021 may include:

Figure Drawing
Oil Painting
Water-based Painting
Interdisciplinary Projects
Design Projects
Comics and Graphic Novels
Fashion Design and Constructions
Animation and Video Projects

ECPSI classes are Monday–Friday. 9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. providing you with an immersive studio experience. On Tuesday/Thursday evenings 6:00–8:00 p.m. you will participate in exciting workshops designed to help you gain new skills and explore new ideas.

Exhibition of student work will take place on the final day of each session.
