SASI - Studio Art Summer Immersion


Studio Art Summer Immersion (SASI) at the College of Charleston is a unique, two-week intensive summer program offering local high school sophomores, juniors and seniors with a strong demonstrated interest in studio art exposure to college-level studio art foundation classes. Students will get experience working with local artist educators to produce works in mediums focused on drawing, painting, digital photos, and mixed media. Students walk away with portfolio-quality work and images for their college application and personal use. The program is centered on providing college-bound students with a dynamic summer experience in an arts-focused college setting, including outings and visits to local galleries and museums.
