CSI HIGH SCHOOL ART INTENSIVE
Dates: June 3-7
Ages: Grades 9-12
Location: Art Complex, Art Lab 123
Times: 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
The CSI High School Art Intensive is a weeklong introduction to the 2D arts at the College of Southern Idaho. This Camp is designed for students entering grades 9-12 who are interested in Fine Arts and what CSI has to offer potential students. Over the course of a week, students will be introduced to a sampling of all that the photographic medium has to offer. This Camp will include digital, darkroom and alternative photographic processes. Students in this Art Intensive Camp will also learn about the “cultural language” within visual art. Understanding this language will help you create more thoughtful work, but also connect you with other artists and their agendas across all the fine art mediums. We will photograph in some fashion the rest of our lives, so let’s get together and do it better! If you are interested in this creative outlet over the summer, this Intensive is a perfect
way of discovering self-expression and what a photograph can be! A cell phone, walking shoes, notebook and pen is all that’s required for the Camp. If you’d rather use your point & shoot or DSLR camera, please feel free!
