We are so lucky here in the northeast! There are so many different summer opportunities for students in the visual arts because we are close to many colleges and universities. Many schools offer week long or month long programs that allow students to study everything from fashion to game design. Many of these pre-college programs can help a students to see if they like a particular school or program of study before they actually there. Prices for programs vary but many offer partial scholarships that students can apply for. I have received flyers and brochures from school like Pratt, University of the arts and Moore. You can always check these out in the college and art school folders on the wall. If traveling to a school in NYC or Philly are too far, there are many local programs that you can look in to. The idea is to just keep working, making art and pushing yourself creatively.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
