Moving off-Grounds in 2005, the University of Virginia Art Museum’s summer arts program, “Summer Arts @ the Ix,” will center on the involvement of the surrounding community. The program’s theme, “Seeing Yourself...Unfold,”emphasizes ideas of personal and community identity for rising fourth- to 12th-grade students through explorations of and interactions with portraiture. Young artists will create works inspired by personal experience and social interaction.
Designed in conjunction with “The Paper Sculpture Show” at the U.Va. Art Museum (June 18 to Aug.14), and in collaboration with theVirginia Center for Book Arts, “Seeing Yourself...Unfold”will provide unique opportunities to create and explore print-based media. The program will be organized in three unique one-week sessions, focusing on photography, printmaking and filmmaking. Students will travel to the U.Va. Art Museum to investigate “The Paper Sculpture Show.” Additional program collaborators include the Music Resource Center, and professional artists and educators from throughout the community.
To celebrate the program, student art will be displayed at a final exhibition from Aug. 16 through Aug. 24, hosted by the U.Va. Art Museum.
Program tuition is $220 for members and $255 for nonmembers before June 1 (the nonmember fee includes museum membership.) After June 1, the fees increase to $250 for members and $285 for nonmembers. Tuition includes participation in all studio art classes and special workshops, art materials, daily snacks, a field trip to the Music Resource Center and program insurance. Additionally, there will be a limited number of full scholarships to youth with financial needs.
