High school students and recent graduates have until June 6 to submit their applications for the Oconaluftee Institute for Cultural Arts’ summer art portfolio program.
Classes for this program will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 11-29. The program will allow 30 high school students and 2012 graduates to enhance their art skills and prepare a portfolio for college admissions into a fine arts program.
Students will be divided into three groups of 10 and will rotate through printmaking, drawing and sculpture. In each of these areas, students will work with college instructors and generational instructors from Cherokee.
There will be a $50 charge for each student. Payment will be due during the day of registration. Students who need financial support can submit a one-page letter of request with the registration form stating your current situation, future plans and how they think they would benefit from the experience.
