Summer Art Institute

The Summer Art Institute is designed for talented and highly motivated high school students. Each two-week session carries three units of UCLA college credit, and is structured around a combination of daily instruction, focused studio work, artist lectures, group critiques, individual meetings with faculty, and an exhibition. We are happy to announce that we will be offering one in-person session and one remote session this year. Students may enroll in one, or both, two-week sessions.

In-Person and Remote learning for 2022
This year the Art Summer Institute is offering our program both in-person and remotely! As with every summer, the 2022 Institute will give high school artists the chance to make new friendships, build their portfolio, and experience life as an art student at a major research institution. Institute activities are scheduled from 9:00am to 4:00pm PDT, Mondays through Fridays*, with an hour break for lunch.

Due to the 4th of July holiday, Session A will start classes on Tuesday, July 5 and hold classes on Saturday, July 9
