Make It At Myers

Rising Junior & Senior High School Art + Design Students are invited to apply for the FREE 2022 Summer Pre-College Program at Myers School of Art

MIAM-GalleryShow21-web.jpgThe Myers School of Art at The University of Akron is excited to once again be offering a FREE pre-college summer program for rising junior and senior high school art students.

Participants will work directly with Myers faculty and staff to create a personal narrative while discovering all that our art and design school has to offer. This FREE two-week in-person experience will allow students to take advantage of our school’s reputation of working across disciplines.

Open studios will include ceramics, painting/drawing, maker lab, and graphic design.

Several field trips to area museums and galleries will also be included. Participants’ final work will be shown in an exhibition in Folk Hall on the final day. Family and friends are welcome to attend the exhibition.
