Inspired high school artists are invited to participate in motivating, diverse, and innovative arts experiences at the UNCG Summer Arts & Design Camp 2017. During the interdisciplinary camp, the UNCG faculty and staff of Visual Art, Media Studies, and Interior Architecture departments, Weatherspoon Art Museum, and UNCG art education counselors work closely with campers to encourage being creative as they learn and experiment with new concepts, materials, and techniques. Campers are able to produce portfolio-quality artwork in a university environment that offers state-of-the-art studio facilities and resources.

The UNCG’s Interdisciplinary summer Arts & Design Camp offers various visual art studio courses, filmmaking and interior architecture classes including individual and group studio art activities, self-guided open-studio sessions, museum-based art enrichment activities, as well as a curated student art exhibition to complete the program for this art-entertaining week. A visiting artist talk by nationally known contemporary artists and Weatherspoon Art Museum visits and activities enrich the college-level studio experiences. The camp ends with a closing art show in the UNCG Gatewood Gallery for the artists-in-residence, families, and friends.
