Join other talented high school students to explore creativity, build valuable skills, and become immersed in the arts at our summer programs. 

The College of Fine and Applied Arts is excited to offer a variety of summer programs virtually for 2021 for rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors. The School of Art and Design will host a virtual summer opportunity June 28–July 2 in 3D outdoor wire sculpture, bookmaking and book arts, drawing, and graphic design. The Department of Theatre will offer a virtual summer program June 28–30 in acting and theatre tech. The Department of Dance will host a dance intensive virtually June 28–July 2 that will feature classes in contemporary dance, African dance, ballet, house, and musical theatre.

The most recent Discover Architecture program was held over Zoom in July 2020. Students were given a sketchbook to practice their drawing and freehand sketching, were exposed to the school's program areas and learned how to begin assembling a portfolio of their work. Virtually, students visited the Illinois School of Architecture and an architectural firm. Four-hour sessions taught across several days gave students an introduction to Illinois faculty, who are committed to giving the students at the Illinois School of Architecture a robust education about and experience within the built environment.

Discover Architecture is focused not only on helping prospective students decide if they want to pursue architecture as a profession, but also on giving students new to architecture a look into a unique undergraduate experience. Please email architecture@illinois.edu with questions about the 2021 offerings.

ISYM will have a large line-up of virtual programs for summer 2021. The following sessions will be offered: Flute, Oboe and Bassoon, Clarinet, Trumpet, Horn, Trombone, Tuba and Euphonium, Percussion, Composition, Music Technology, Piano, Hip Hop, and Strings.
