Summer Intensive studies program. Parsons Pre-college describes the program as an “intensive three-week, three-credit program open to those wishing to deepen their knowledge of art and design in an academically rigorous and artistically stimulating environment. Students spend five days a week in studio classes and receive challenging homework assignments. Courses are supplemented by special events, including portfolio reviews, Parsons alumni career panels, and lectures by industry guests, all designed to prepare students for admission to design school or direct them toward relevant career paths.” On Friday July 26, scholars showcased the artwork they completed amongst hundreds of students in high school and adults deepening their understanding of art & design within a specific medium. The open studios event took place throughout Parsons buildings and included classes in animation, photography, video, printmaking, graphic design, fine art, and an array of fashion studies.
