QUICK TAKE: For any high school student who wants to work

in design or architecture, this would be an excellent place.

This camp is part of the well-known arts school, Pratt. Here

your student will work to improve his or her understanding

in many fields of art and get to make a portfolio. The student

also earns college credit after attending.

AGE REQUIREMENT: 16–18

SPONSORSHIP/OWNERSHIP/ACCREDITATION: Pratt Institute

FEES: Boarding program, $3,000. $1,850 for students who commute.

Merit-based financial aid is available.

BACKGROUND: The Pratt Institute was founded in 1887 by

Charles Pratt, who wanted to create a college focused on art,

design, and architecture. The college has campuses in Brooklyn

and Manhattan, both in close proximity to theaters, museums,

and galleries. This summer program is available to high

school students who desire a future in the arts, and it affords

them the opportunity to work on their portfolios and earn

college credit.

DESCRIPTION: The Manhattan campus is only for commuter

students; Brooklyn accepts residential students and com-

muters. The students will work within their subject areas, but

must also take four required courses: Foundation of Art and

Design, Art History Appreciation, Portfolio Development, and

one elective. Other classes include Graphic Design, Illustration,

Fashion Design (only offered in Brooklyn), Photography,

and Painting and Drawing. On weekends there are opportunities

to visit New York City and see art exhibits and architecture.

The thirty-day session occurs in July.

OUR TAKE: If your student has a strong interest in the arts,

Pratt should be on your list. The school has much to offer the

aspiring art student, and it has the culture of New York City

in its backyard.

OUR RECOMMENDATION: This is an extremely intense program;

applicants should be reasonably certain that their future lies

in art. Check the Web site and call the administrator for additional

information.
