For the Love of Art

Discover and Explore your Passion – Annual High School Special Event Series

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 students 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 a reception with an exhibit featuring student work.

For the Love of Art fall intensives are open to both high school juniors and seniors. Spring intensives are exclusive to high school juniors.

Art Foundations

An intensive in drawing the nude figure, 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.
