Adelphi University’s 10-week art intensive, For the Love of Art, gives high school students the opportunity to improve and fine-tune their artistic craft.

Discover and Explore Your Passion

Adelphi faculty members will help mold artistic minds as students participate in one of our 10-week-long Art Foundation and Graphic Design art intensives. Each session offers three hours of studio time each week during which they will focus on either drawing or graphic design. The conclusion of each intensive is marked by an exhibit featuring student work.

For the Love of Art fall intensives are open to high school juniors and seniors. Sophomores nominations may be approved on a limited basis if space permits.

Classes will be held on our Garden City campus. 

Art Foundations

An intensive in drawing the human form, taught by accomplished figurative artists, graduates of the academic tradition taught at the New York Academy of Art and Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and Adelphi University, offers high school juniors and seniors a chance to expand their skills while building their portfolios.

Graphic Design

Students will use state-of-the-art digital applications to dive into the exciting world of Graphic Design; creating posters, logos, designs and promotional materials for a variety of uses. The intensive will introduce students to the wide world of visual communication and the broad uses of Graphic Design in the contemporary world.
