Critical Language and Contemporary Issues for Artists and Designers
This program prepares incoming students who are non-native English speakers for their first year of art education. English for Art and Design Students is a two-week intensive course that offers new students the opportunity to build community, gain classroom interaction and critique experience, and practice theory-focused reading, writing, and presentation of their work. Following the completion of this course, students are able to:
- Define and utilize critical vocabulary and concepts specific to arts education
- Understand how to engage in classroom discussion and critique processes
- Critically read and write at levels commensurate with program expectations
Course activities include developing art- and design-focused writing skills and might include writing an art/design statement, a studio presentation, an exhibition review, or a curatorial proposal.
On-campus housing is provided for all students and the cost is included in the program fee. Students share a furnished apartment with a bathroom, a living room, and a full kitchen. Meals are not provided to students, except for lunch on the first day. Students may not move into on-campus housing early; please plan your travel accordingly and make hotel accommodations if necessary.
