Summer Studio '08 begins
(SAN BERNARDINO Calif.) For more than six years the Art Institutes throughout North America have conducted their Summer Studio program for high school juniors and seniors, giving them a sample of both advanced academic life and work in the “real world.”
Starting Monday June 16, the Inland Empire campus in San Bernardino at 630 East Brier Drive launches its third Summer Studio program, creating a 20th Anniversary poster and other projects for the Habitat for Humanity of Riverside.
The week begins with students being taught about the nonprofit Habitat for Humanity to learn the project’s objectives and challenges. Then they get to work under the guidance of the Academic Director of Foundations Stephen Bautista.
The Summer Studio plan is a multi-faceted one: Aiding the community’s nonprofits while introducing high school juniors and seniors to hands-on experiences instead of the traditional academic classroom work. Admissions Director Monica Jeffs adds, “The Summer Studio program is just four days, but it’s a brief yet intense way to show students what their interests are really like in a professional working environment.”
Jeffs adds, “The Summer Studio ‘08 program provides them the opportunity to discover if they have a passion for the arts, and prepares them for their future careers.”
Enrollment opportunities are still available, and at least 35 students are expected to take part. The fee for the four-day workshop is $150.00, and $350.00 with housing accommodations chaperoned by Art Institute staff.
High school juniors and seniors interested in more information or to enroll may simply call the school at (909) 915-2100.
