Fort Mason Young Artists Summer Program

June 12th - June 23, 2017 at the CCSF Fort Mason Site

In partnership with Embark Arts, CCSF Office of Continuing Education is excited to offer a new and exciting Middle School and High School Summer Art program at Fort Mason Center. Two week intensive courses in Painting and Drawing, Photography, Ceramics and Printmaking will be taught by recent MFA graduates from Bay Area graduate programs. The program will provide a safe and dynamic environment to create art in, encouraging experimentation and play.

All courses culminate in a pop-up show at Embark Gallery on Friday, June 23rd.

For students attending class in both the morning and afternoon, lunch will be held in Room 106 and an Art:21 video will be screened.




The courses will include a range of distinct materials and conceptual focuses developed by the artists, derived from their creative practices, and inspired by themes and conversations relevant to students at the middle and high school level. Courses and workshops will be held in the CCSF classrooms and will culminate in a pop-up show held at Embark Gallery -- providing the students with professional development in the best practices for curation, installation, and exhibitions to give a complete picture of the working artist experience.

The program will provide students with a unique experience of working with an emerging Bay Area artist, as well as address concerns of the city and community, historical or contemporary art, and a variety of concepts and materials.
