Walnut Hill School for the Arts and the New Art Center in Newton—two of the region’s most respected arts institutions —have created a new summer visual art program for artists in grades 7 – 12 who are interested in refining their skills in visual art while exploring new disciplines and techniques. This 3-week-long program allows students to take a range of courses in Ceramics, 2D Mixed Media, 3D Mixed Media, Drawing and Painting and Portfolio Preparation. Each week, students will select one medium for the entire morning and two different media for the afternoon. The program takes place on Walnut Hill’s scenic 30-acre campus in Natick, MA, utilizing the school’s wide range of visual art studios. Classes are taught by a diverse selection of talented faculty from both organizations. Lunch is provided each day, and there will be opportunities for a daily swim in Walnut Hill’s outdoor pool (weather permitting). At the close of the program, students will exhibit their artwork in a formal gallery exhibition and reception for family and friends.
