Application Process

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 monthly virtual workshops. Open to any 6th or 7th grader interested in getting a taste of the arts-X-press summer program, our virtual workshop series is a great way to meet staff, counselors, alumni, and other campers without having to wait until July!
