Continuing Studies and High School Programs

Featured: Summer 2019 High School Visual Arts Program

High school and middle school students who are passionate and committed to their art are invited to explore their potential through a number of programs at the Hartford Art School. Hartford Art School can help provide outside opportunities and exposure that will help prepare you for art school and being an artist.

 

High and Middle School Programs for Students and Educators

Arts in the Middle Conference

This annual conference brings hundreds of middle school students and their teachers to our campus for all day studio workshops. Students make watercolor portraits, wire sculpture, digital photographs,  ceramic pots, and everything in between. This partnership we share with middle schools provides a wonderful opportunity to inspire both students and teachers. Please contact the Connecticut Association of Schools for details on the Arts in the Middle Conference.

Connecticut Scholastics

The annual Connecticut Scholastic Art Awards and Exhibition brings hundreds of middle and high school students and their parents as well as teachers and supporters of the fine arts to our campus for a statewide juried exhibition and award ceremony. More than 500 student works, chosen against thousands, shows at the Silpe Gallery. Awards ranging from cash prizes and art supplies to college scholarships are granted to exceptional students. For more details and for how to get involved, contact the Connecticut Art Education Association.

SBM Foundation Pre-Collegiate Workshops

Each year, the SBM Foundation provides a grant to the Hartford Art School to administer a series of four pre-collegiate studio workshops. The program brings three high schools (Manchester, East Hartford, and Rockville, selected by the grantor) to campus involving 60 students during each visit. These students and teachers have the opportunity to come to the Hartford Art School and participate in studio workshops and lectures over the academic year.  Any schools and grantors interested in a similar arrangement should contact us for details.

Special Workshops

We offer one-day workshops for you and your classes in a variety of studio areas. These sessions utilize our regular facilities and are taught by our faculty. Cost to students is minimal and many supplies are provided by the Hartford Art School. Transportation is arranged by your school as a field trip. These workshops are generally offered on Fridays and are approximately three to four hours long. Parental permission is required and for life drawing classes. We can also arrange for teacher workshops in any studio area.
