UW-Madison Department of Art High School Summer Program


This one-week course provides 30 hours of immersive, 2D and 3D studio experiences, walking tours of art museums and galleries, and conversation with UW- Madison art faculty and MFA graduate students. This summer, 2D studio focuses on woodcut relief printmaking but also includes multi-media exploration, observational drawing, and examination of contemporary print makers and their practices. In 3D studio, students discover glass as an art media and learn to use a specific technique called “networking”. All participating high school students establish a permanent UW-Madison transcript record and will earn one, undergraduate credit for completion of this course.
