These activities take place within the United States and abroad including past off-campus learning programs in Egypt, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Tonga, Hawaii, China, Thailand, Cambodia, Mexico, and Morocco.
CORE SUMMER PROGRAM
The BYU Department of Art is announcing a new summer term program offering a set of three courses that are prerequisite to admission into the department: Drawing 114, 2D Composition 115, and 3D Composition 133. This will be an intensive core foundation experience with fifteen studio hours weekly with three full-time professors over a seven-week term running from June 26 – August 14. In addition, there will be six Friday field trips designed to facilitate cross-disciplinary activities linking all three courses. Students completing course requirements will earn 7.5 credits. Participants involved in this cohort must be enrolled in all three courses, and these should represent the students full course load for summer term. Upon acceptance to BYU for summer term, interested individuals should contact Sharon Heelis in the Art Office at: 801.422.4429 and she will register you into the bundle of all three courses. We will be accepting a maximum of eighteen people for the cohort on a first come first serve basis.
This program is perfect for those that plan on coming to BYU as an art major or minor wishing to get a head start. It is also great for visiting students that would like to strengthen their portfolio for application to another program, and the credits earned are often accepted by other institutions.
For those not attending BYU as a matriculated student, but who are interested in this program…
During spring and/or summer term, high school graduates who are, or will be, actively pursuing a degree at another college or university are invited to be a part of the BYU community as non-degree-seeking students. While on campus, students in the program will enroll in college-level courses and also enjoy a wide range of BYU cultural and social experiences.
