Purchase College provides unique and fun opportunities for students to spend the summer exploring the visual, performing, and digital arts guided by experienced instructors and practicing artists.
Youth programs for grades 3-8 encourage exploration of a variety of artistic genres—from creative writing, filmmaking, and photography to acting and creating epic virtual reality adventures.
Precollege programs for grades 9-12 allow high school students who are motivated artists, performers, musicians, filmmakers, writers, or scientists and/or have an interest in pursuing these disciplines on a college level to pursue their passion or to create work to bolster college applications.
Programs run one, two, or four weeks. Participants can choose between exciting and inspiring programs in app creation, architecture, creative writing, digital arts, filmmaking, journalism, music, performing arts, theatre, visual arts, and video game development.
