Art, Architecture Sponsor Summer Program for Teens

SEED 2010, a two-week program for creative high school students, opens at The University of Texas at Arlington June 7. This is the fifth year for the innovative program, called SEED — Strategies, Events, Episodes + Devices. SEED is a collaborative project of the Department of Art and Art History and the School of Architecture.

Participants are select high school students, nominated by their art teachers.  The students will be juniors or senior in the fall of 2010 and have demonstrated interest and aptitude in art, architecture and design.  UT Arlington faculty will teach the program, emphasizing active learning and the development of creativity through the exploration of a variety of art and design media and methods. Activities are designed to enhance the students’ creative vocabulary and portfolios.

SEED 2010 will focus on Gaming Exploration for artists. The program runs daily from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. through June 18.  There are no program costs to participants and all materials are provided. Contact Jessica Rose at jsrose@uta.edu, Bre Beacham at beacham@uta.edu or call the Art and Art History office at 817-272-2891 for more information.

The students’ work will be exhibited from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday, June 18, in Gallery West in the Studio Art Center Building, 810 South Davis.
