Saint Francis is a hidden gem for the arts. With an outstanding regional reputation, multiple gallery spaces showcasing contemporary art, and renowned alumni, the University supports and nourishes the next generation of creators. Our Summer Studio Art program introduces campers to the full art school vibe. You’ll meet working artists, hone your skills, and begin building a portfolio for potential college scholarship.

Classes are offered in a variety of 2D and 3D media. Once registered, campers will receive a packet with class descriptions for each session. Campers select their top 3 choices for both morning and afternoon sessions. Sessions include Graphic Design, Photography, Sculpture, Ceramics, Drawing, and Printmaking.

Our program encourages you to develop your own studio practice, explore your creative abilities, and sharpen your critical eye.

This camp does not provide meals. Please pack your own lunches.

  • Immerse yourself in the creative arts studios under the guidance of university art professors and professional artists.
  • The program will culminate with an exhibition in the Weatherhead Gallery showcasing student work created over the course of the 2-week program.

This USF Discovery Academy experience is designed by USF educators and professional artists. Campers will get to experience life on a college campus and learn about future careers.

In our Summer Studio Experience for Visual Art, in particular, campers discover the rhythm of an art school education while advancing their techniques and building relationships with professional art mentors. Campers will gain:

  • A more mature aesthetic sensibility
