Summer Institutes

2019 CEPA SUMMER INSTITUTES

The Summer Institutes for Art Educators are held in the summer months that correspond to public school summer vacation schedules. The Institutes provide intensive one to two week instruction in art education and related fields of study. While art education and visual studies courses meet for one week, studio courses may run for two weeks. The Institutes connect students with community resources and visiting artist/scholars. The Institutes are designed to provide in-depth experiences that are unavailable through regular coursework.

Registration begins on March 18, 2019

Registration ends one week prior to the start of the Institute. No refunds will be given after the start of class.

Non-credit registrations are limited.

Workshops are for ACT 48 hours only.
