as a major. It is located at the Rhode Island School of Design,

near the town College Hill. The students are given challenging

art classes in their own field of choice. The knowledge

acquired in this camp will help your student with his or her

plans for college.

AGE REQUIREMENT: 16–18

FEES: The day program is between $2,900 and $3,600. The

boarding program is from $3,800 to $4,200. Financial aid is

available based on need and merit.

SPONSORSHIP/OWNERSHIP/ACCREDITATION: Rhode Island

School of Design

BACKGROUND: Since its inception in 1970, the program has

been allowing high school students from around the world to

experience an intense artistic atmosphere. The program is

directed at students who want art as a career and those who

are interested in complementing their liberal arts work.

DESCRIPTION: Students select their focus from a variety of

programs (from fashion and jewelry design to photography

and painting). The students must take three required courses:

foundation drawing, basic design, and art history. The schedule

is packed with work from 7:30 AM to 11 PM on weekdays,

with some of this time devoted to independent out-of-class

work. The camp lasts for six weeks during the summer.

OUR TAKE: An excellent program for students with an interest

in the arts. It puts students on track when it comes time to

prepare their portfolios for college applications.

OUR RECOMMENDATION: This is a very focused and rigorous

program, so before sending your kid, make sure he or she

understands the background of the camp. It’s located in a

safe and scenic environment for students and is near other

great colleges in the Boston area.
