May 30 - June 12, 2022
Application Deadline: April 30, 2022
This year, we are offering five courses for our annual Kent Blossom Art Intensives (KBAI), featuring an exciting array of visiting artists and resident faculty. Each intensive is specific to one medium and this year we are offering courses in ceramics, jewelry/metals/enameling, painting, print media, and sculpture and expanded media. Participants will work in the studio seven days a week from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. with access to studio space, labs, equipment and tools at the Center for the Visual Arts at Kent State University.
KBAI provides students and individual artists with two weeks of focused learning, experimentation and creation under the guidance of experienced artists from around the country. Students may continue their explorations of the medium most familiar to them; experienced artists are equally encouraged to discover new modes of creating. Similar to an artist residency, participants create a self-directed body of artwork and have the additional benefits of open discussions and professional mentorship. At the end of the two weeks, all participants will have the chance to show the work they created in a gallery exhibition at the Center for the Visual Arts.
Undergraduate and graduate students at Kent State University or other colleges or universities may take any course for credit. Students can earn 3 undergraduate credits or 3-4 graduate credits in each intensive. Kent Blossom Art Intensives are also open to individual artists at a non-credit tuition rate at $1100. **Refund Policy: Must have 7 days notice prior to the start of the program of withdrawal intention in order to receive full refund. No exceptions.
