Students are nominated by teachers, tutors, or any adult who can vouch for their creative spark and that they would benefit from this creative cocoon to explore their inner artist! To apply for the chance at this once-in-a-lifetime summer, students need to fill out an online or paper application. You will be notified of your application status within two weeks of submitting, and will receive next-step information and instructions on registration and tuition.
In addition to our summer program, students may also apply to join our spring workshop. Open to any 6th – 8th grader interested in getting a taste of the arts-X-press summer program, our spring workshop is a great way to meet staff, counselors, alumni, and other campers before July!
Applications for arts-X-press 2023 and arts-X-press spring 2023 workshop will be available in February 2023.
Applicants must currently be in 6th, 7th or 8th grade. No previous arts training is necessary.
To provide this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to as many students as we can, we need the help of people like YOU!
We welcome all adults to nominate arts-loving and creative middle school students for arts-X-press!
The full tuition for arts-X-press is $850, which covers all costs for the program including room, board and performance tickets. Applications for financial aid will be sent with acceptance letters. NO student will ever be turned away from arts-X-press for financial reasons. Financial aid is available to all students, based on need, and we are committed to making it possible for all accepted students to attend.
