Early registration includes tuition discount

Garrison Art Center’s Summer Art Institute for Teens is open for registration. The Summer Art Institute was founded to enhance the arts education provided by area high schools. The 3-week program offers artists grades 9–12 the opportunity to work in five professional studios under the guidance of teaching artists, and is aimed at any art student who is interested in portfolio development or just being immersed in the fine arts and would like to spend time learning new skills and growing creatively.

The program takes place July 20 through Aug. 7 with an exhibition Aug. 8–9, and early registration (before May 1) includes a discount on tuition.

The Summer Art Institute’s commitment is to be supportive, encouraging and open-minded, while also teaching a vital skill set. Call the Art Center at 845-424-3960 or visit the website, garrisonartcenter.org, for more information or to register. Students are encouraged to meet in advance of registration for a tour of the studios and a thorough description of what to expect in the program.
