Students attending the Art Summer Academy will get the chance to get a taste of what it takes to be a successful artist.
“The Art Summer is an amazing opportunity to get an education that will make you a better artist,” said Jessica Rios, an associate professor of art history at The New School.
“And I can tell you right now, I’m in awe of how much better I’m doing.”
According to Rios and Art Summer President Maria Rangel, more than 50 percent of art school graduates have found work.
And that number is increasing every year.
“We are seeing more students going into art school,” Rios said.
“This year, we have more than 1,000 new students applying for the program.
The Art Spring is the culmination of a two-year effort to bring students from around the world together to teach them how to make art.
In the summer of 2017, Rios founded the Art Spring, an art collective with students from across the globe, to make sure they can get a glimpse of their dreams, which she believes can be the starting point for all artists.
Rios and her team have worked tirelessly to build a platform to help artists get into the art world.
Artists are invited to apply and get a spot on the waitlist for the summer program.
The program is open to anyone, but students have to have an average SAT score of at least 1400 to be considered.
“Students who can demonstrate that they are very good at the craft are more likely to be accepted into Art Summer,” Rangel said.
“I think it’s a really exciting time to be here,” said Jaimie Smith, who has been a member of the program since it started in 2015.
“I hope to be able to contribute to the learning process and the success of the Art summer.
I know it’s going to be great.”
To make sure the program is successful, Rangel has had to make some tough decisions.
“Our first priority is making sure we can recruit students who are very well-prepared to go into the program,” she said.
She also needs to figure out how to get some students on the waiting list to show up for the school.
“Art Summer is a really competitive program,” Rinos said.
The program is an excellent fit for students who have artistic aspirations, like Rios.
She said she hopes to bring in as many artists as possible.
“There are people who are coming up here and doing great work, but there are a lot of artists who don’t even know who they are,” she added.
“And they might have the same interests as we do.
But I’m hoping to give them the opportunity to learn from people who have a different vision and who are passionate about what they do.”
