Summer Studio Scholarship Program (SSSP)
This six-week intensive summer program gives students (teens to adults) the opportunity to gain knowledge, develop new and existing skills and explore career options under the supervision and guidance of professional artists and university level instructors. Lessons concentrate on drawing, painting, sculpture, and art history. Studio work is supplemented by visits to professional studios, galleries and museums.
This flagship program accommodates 40 students divided equally between three age groups: 13 to 15 year olds, 16 to 18 years olds, and college students and adults. Many activities are intergenerational, allowing for a natural exchange of acquired knowledge and energy. The training offered in extended studio sessions is equivalent to university level classes and exceeds the studio time available in college courses, even for the 13 year-olds.
Applications to SSSP are reviewed in early June. To be placed on a mailing list for this application, please call Art Lab at 718-447-8667. SSSP Application
