Summer Art School Comes to North of Wynwood

8th-grade-art-students-0041Exciting news for young artists! Summer Art School is coming to a local high school north of Wynwood. The visual arts program will offer weekly intensive series looking to inspire and educate young minds just near Miami’s Arts District.

Archbishop Curley Notre Dame Prep announces partnership with Arts for Learning (A4L) and will provide quality art instruction for students, in grades 6 to 9, commencing with summer art classes offered from June 17 to July 19, 2013. Three distinct 2D/3D mixed media courses will be offered over a five week period and the program will conclude with a student artist exhibition and portfolio review.

The camp’s goal is to increase students’ experience and exposure to the visual arts and provide a platform for them to exercise their creative and critical skills.  “Through A4L programs, students have the opportunity to understand, experience, create and connect art to other areas of learning,” explains Sheila Womble, A4L’s Executive Director.  “As such, A4L’s programs improve students’ technical skills within an artistic discipline as well as address other art skills such as creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and decision making. A4L programs also assist in improving students’ peer relations. These skills are essential for middle school students.”

Middle school students will develop skills under the tutelage of an A4L professional teaching artist staff, benefit from guest speakers, and tour area studios and galleries.  ACND Prep’s location just north of Miami’s Design District and Wynwood will allow easy access to galleries and studios for students to meet, learn, and connect with local artists.
