Safety

art and design studentAt the UNCG Summer Arts and Design Intensive program, students will experience self-motivated artistic journeys to expand their creativity, critical thinking and problem solving skills. Under the exceptional leadership and guidance of the artist-faculty of the UNCG School of Art, Interior Architecture and Art Education Teaching Licensure Program, students will grow as potential artists and critical visual consumers. Each studio class offers limited seats to provide intensive and vibrant instruction.

During the week, a number of art counselors, who are UNCG art education pre-service teachers provide organized supervision and assistance to help the students throughout the daily instructional schedules, as well as recreational activities in the dorm.

While staying in the UNCG residence halls, all students will be under the supervision of our professional art education staff. Experienced art counselors will be assigned to groups of students during the week and will closely monitor all aspects of campus life.

Sunday schedule will begin at 4 p.m. with dinner in the UNCG Dining Hall.

Health Care

Each student must complete a Medical Information Form, signed by parent(s) or guardian and bring it to check-in. Any illness or injury to a student will be reported to the parent at the time of incidence and our staff will escort the student to see a physician or visit a hospital. The Medical Information Form will be brought by the staff escorted and given to the physician. Costs resulting from a doctor visit, prescription medications, x-rays, lab work or hospital treatments are the responsibility of the parent(s) or guardian.

Camp Policies

  1. Cell Phone Policy
    For a variety of reasons students may have cell phones but they must be turned off and put away during studio classes and enrichment events, this means cell phones can only be out during lunch and when waiting to be picked up. Cell phones can cause distractions, which cause accidents (which we would like to avoid). We want the students to get the maximum learning experience without a distraction.
  2. Music Policy
    Music while working on artwork will be up to each instructor to decide.
  3. Bullying Policy
    Bullying is when one or more people exclude, tease, taunt, gossip, hit, kick, or put down another person with the intent to hurt them. Bullying happens when a person or group of people try to exercise power over another person and use this power to get their way at someone else’s expense. Bullying is hurtful regardless of what form it takes. In extreme cases, it can escalate until people are physically harmed.A student may be expelled from the program without refund for any disrupting behavior that endangers or detracts from the positive art experience of other students.Our staff takes all instances of bullying seriously. We train our staff to promote good communication between students and staff so that everyone is comfortable alerting us about bullying.
