SADI Students

Applications for Summer Arts and Design Intensive 2023 will open on February 15.

SADI 2023 logoThe University of North Carolina at Greensboro is exhilarated to announce the 10th year of the Summer Arts and Design Intensive, the advanced and compelling School of Art’s summer visual art program. This summer, we will offer a one-week-long residential art program, accepting up to 100 student artists. The studio program includes drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, graphic design, and animation.

Student artists at the 2023 Summer Arts and Design Intensive are under the leadership and guidance of the UNCG School of Art’s artist faculty. In addition, distinguished art educators, professional artists, and UNCG art education preservice teachers are joining the staff of SADI to ensure that each student receives high-quality instruction and explores a unique creative journey.

Faculty-led studio sessions combine traditional techniques with contemporary artistic experimentation to help students develop to their full potential. Enrichment activities such as artist’s talks, visits to the local Weatherspoon Art Museum, and an art-related career seminar will offer the participants inspiring artistic experiences. As a tradition, SADI concludes with a student art exhibition at the Gatewood Gallery in the School of Art building for campers, their families, and friends on Friday afternoon, the last day of camp.

The UNCG Summer Arts and Design Intensive application process is entirely ONLINE! A parent or guardian must complete the application for the child. Only a laptop or desktop computer may work to complete registration. After submitting the application, there is a two-week process period.
