Summer Art Studios

Young Artist Program Update

Thank you for your continued patience as we work to resume programming at Southwest School of Art through the COVID-19 health crisis. To ensure the safety of our students and instructors, we will offer our Summer Arts Studios program through a digital platform during the month of July only. All on-campus youth programs will be cancelled through the summer with no youth courses offered in June or August. This decision was made with much contemplation and while we know it may not be the news our participating families were hoping for, we believe it is in the best interest of our students.

Registration for Summer Art Studios had begun prior to the implementation of the City’s Stay Home order. Those registered families will receive priority registration for the digital program. Families who do not wish to participate in the digital program will be offered the opportunity to apply their balance to a future course at Southwest School of Art for up to a year. Scholarship students who chose not to participate in the summer program will relinquish their award but will be considered first for scholarships 2021. Families who decide not to participate in future programming, can request a full refund. Details will be sent directly to all registered families by May 25, 2020 with information on pricing, registration, and offerings.

Information regarding open registration for the July program will be announced by early June after classes have been finalized. Please keep in mind that this situation is fluid and should demand require, additional digital programming could be added in August, however, that decision will rely on a number of factors and likely will not be announced until later this summer.

We continue to monitor this ever-changing situation and the advice of health professionals and local leaders. We are in the process of determining the best path for all our fall programs. More information will be released as it becomes available.

We encourage you to monitor our website and social platforms for the latest updates.
