Northwestern launches summer arts program for high school students
April 5—Northwestern presents a dynamic alternative to traditional summer camp for 9th through 12th graders: Summer Season Creative Arts Workshops. Five all-day workshops provide students with an opportunity to explore the creative mediums that interest them. The workshops will be offered on campus July 16–20, 2012 and taught by Northwestern faculty members actively engaged in their respective creative fields.
The faculty will work closely with students, helping them develop their skills through these selected workshops:
Creative Writing (poetry or prose) – work with published professors, and learn how to write works of beauty from a Christian perspective through guided reading assignments, discussion and critique.
Studio Art (ceramics, sculpture or printmaking) –professors will nurture both art and faith as students experiment with ceramic vessels and clay, printmaking and sculpting.
Film –award-winning professors will guide a collaborative production process as teams of students explore the different stages of production—writing, producing and editing—to produce a short film.
Creative Arts Workshop attendees will create polished works that they will showcase at the end of the week for fellow artists, family and friends at the Summer Season Finale.
