Bob Jones student attended art seminiar program in Colorado

Hunter Vroonland, a student at Bob Jones High School, was awarded a full-tuition, room and board scholarship to attend The Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation 2011 Summer Seminar Program.  

Hunter attended Session 2 June 19 – July 2, 2011. Celebrating its 25th year, the Summer Seminar held on the campus of The Colorado College is a national program designed as an art institute offering an intensive visual art studio program for gifted high school juniors.

Three two-week sessions are held from June 5 – July 16, 2011 with up to 21 students attending each session. 

A jury of artists, which reviewed hundreds of applications, selected the 62 participants from CDs of original work and a written recommendation from a high school art teacher.  Artists serve as the primary instructors. The artists provide instruction, giving specific problems to solve and assignments to complete.

The Summer Seminar program allows students to gain a stronger foundation of skills and understanding of the visual arts through experiencing college-level drawing and painting classes in a group studio setting.

Sessions concerning careers in art, the development of a portfolio, and small group discussions with artists sharing their unique insights, technical expertise and commitment to art are included.  Students also enjoy a full schedule of evening and weekend activities. Trips are planned to draw, paint and sightsee in the Pikes Peak area and in the mountains at the Colorado College Baca campus.
