If your child is interested in visual arts, like design and drawing, there’s something for them, too.

“We also love to focus on students developing artwork based on their own concepts, stories, and interests,” says Caroline Tippette, Arts+ Director of Visual Art Programs. “This comes into play via processes like creating characters and intricate plots (exploring comics) and creating a digital world for an original character (digital illustration).”
