Intensive Program

The Intensive Program is a semester-long immersion in art instruction, offered through the Continuing Studies department. It is offered for the Summer, Spring or Fall Semesters. Students in the Intensive take 21 hours of instruction per week and work with an advisor to tailor a course load that works best for their schedule, skill level and interests. Classes are offered in a wide range of subjects, including oil painting, watercolor, portraiture, sculpture, landscapes, drawing, printmaking and much more. Click here for a full class list.

Students in the Intensive Program have full access to the Academy’s extracurricular offerings, from artist talks with major art stars to panel discussions featuring an impressive range of critics, curators, and art world figures.
