Career Art Path (CAP), is a two week immersion program in the visual arts for middle school students. The program is designed for students entering the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades and will be held on June 15-26, 2015 at Alma d’Arte Charter High School, 402 W Court Avenue. Tuition is $100 per student for the two-week program; partial scholarships are available. The Arts Council and program founders, Marian and Jordon Wolle, donate financial support to any student who has an expressed interest in the visual arts, but who is unable to pay the full tuition.
2015 will be the 29th anniversary of a remarkable program conceived by Marian Wolle who believes that middle school is the time for youth who are interested in the arts to realize the potential career opportunities in different arts forms, including theatre set design, costume design, architectural design, and graphic design. At the core of the program are daily workshops in a variety of visual art forms including photography, ceramics, digital art, painting and drawing. Each day, students meet guest speakers who are working artists from a variety of private, educational or non-profit organizations. Field trips are planned to local artists’ studios, galleries, museums, and businesses for hands on learning experiences. The program culminates with an art show featuring the students’ art projects.
