Spring Session Teens FAQ
We developed the Full Day Immersion Program in order to provide an enhanced and more comprehensive experience for teens. Our high school students choosing full day immersion will have the opportunity to work on their own in the studio after lunch, continuing projects from morning or afternoon classes. In addition, they will take advantage of learning directly from professionals working in various fields related to art during our after lunch careers-in-art talks. We have many art world professionals such as painters, photographers, children’s book illustrators, museum professionals, architects and a Project Runway participant, who is a graduate of Framingham State University’s well-known Fashion Design department, Nathalia JMag. The full-day participants will also have the advantage of a private tour of the museum designed specifically for them.

We encourage students to take classes with their direct peers. While artistic skills may be advanced, the social atmosphere in our classes is important to the overall learning environment. In this case, the age difference would likely create an uncomfortable experience for both your child and the older students in the class.
