High School students at The Arts Center are encouraged to hone their skills and interests, deeply engage in an intensive study in various mediums, or just discover and expand a new interest.

Our classes and camp intensives are taught by passionate professionals, either NYS Certified Art Teachers, College Faculty, or Teaching Artists well seasoned and educated in their medium of expertise. Our classes and camp intensives are small by choice so that you can get the attention you deserve. Many classes and camp intensives offered are suitable for the beginning student, yet others are directly intended to answer the needs of the college minded fine arts student. High school students are also encouraged to sign up for our public adult classes where you will find a wider variety of offerings throughout the year. Portfolio Development classes and camp intensives are recommended for serious high school students who are developing their college entrance portfolios.

Teen camp intensives and classes at The Arts Center are recommended for high school students (Grades 9-12) unless otherwise specified. Summer camp intensive students must be entering high school in the Fall. Our camps are tailored carefully for each age group. To maximize your students’ enjoyment and safety, please adhere to these guidelines. For Pre-Teen classes/camps (Grades 6-8), click HERE.
