Explore Art & Design at the Pre-College Summer Program

Published on Fri, May 12, 2017


The University will hold a pre-college Art & Design Summer Program from July 24-28, 2017, from 10 a.m.–3 p.m., each day, for students in grades 9-12. The cost of the camp is $375.

The Art and Design camp will feature 3D printing, digital photography, and comic book design.

Cole Hastings Goldstein, MFA, will teach the class on 3D printing. This class will be an introduction into basic 3D modeling and printing. Every student will make their very own design and have a print to to take home.

Sue Jenkins, MFA, clinical assistant professor of art at Marywood University, will teach the digital photography class. Students will learn digital photography basics using smartphone cameras or digital single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras, along with Adobe Photoshop. Students will explore digital photography techniques including shooting modes, aperture, shutter speeds, image sensory (ISO), white balance, and composition. Projects include portraits, editorial, fine art, image editing techniques, animated graphics interchange format (GIF), photo compositing, and more.

Comic book camp will be taught by Vince Bonavolglia, MFA, lecturer in the visual arts department at Marywood University. Students will learn to speak in sequential art, the visual language of comics. Entire universes will be created with nothing more than a pencil, paper, and ink. In the weeklong Comic Book Camp, the focus on character creation and design, narrative structure and pacing, viewpoint and focus, visual cues, and choosing the style of rendering to best compliment the student’s narrative will be explored.
