ABOUT THE SUMMER PAINTING & SCULPTURE INTENSIVES:

 

The Tyler School of Art SPI / SSI is a four week summer immersion program run by the Department of Painting, Drawing and Sculpture for artists interested in developing their work in a challenging and supportive environment. The program is a non-credit, post-baccalaureate-style residency suitable for BA and BFA juniors, seniors and recent graduates aiming to hone their artistic and intellectual skills, for students building a portfolio for application to graduate school, as well as professional artists seeking to strengthen their abilities and expand their outlook.

 

The program seeks to give participants a foundation in concept and craft while providing students with the tools to think critically about their own practices and art in general. Group critiques, individual studio visits and critical studies seminars form the primary support to individual studio practices. The program is led by an artist-director, and the faculty consists of Tyler’s full-time faculty as well as visiting artists, critics, curators and art historians. Students will discuss their work in group settings and in one-on-one conversations with leading members of the contemporary art world. The session will culminate in a group show of student work.

 

Former students of the program have been accepted into many prestigious MFA programs including: Hunter, Yale, RISD, UT Austin, UCLA and of course, Tyler School of Art.

-Weekly Studio Visits with the Program’s Faculty
